Here’s a fun thing to try during mid-summer: Organic Champagne Grapes! Wait, wine grapes? Really? Nope, these are not the famous wine grapes from the Champagne region of France used to make the celebratory bubbly.” Organic Champagne Grapes are actually miniature-sized Seedless Grapes that grow in tight clusters on tender, thin stems. They’re the ultimate dessert grape – intensely sweet and flavorful. The name comes from the “tiny bubbles,” I suppose, and the fact that they were photographed with a glass of Champagne at some point.
How do you eat them? I enjoy eating them by grabbing the thick base of the stem on a cluster, biting down on the whole bunch, and then pulling the main stem from between my teeth. Sure, you might get a few mini-stems in with the grapes but they’re so tender you hardly notice them as you chew.
