Grapes Ideas & Recipes
The thing about grapes is they go with pretty much everything apples do. So:
♦ Grape & cheese sandwiches, especially Brie
♦ Grapes in a Waldorf salad (celery, walnuts, grapes, mayonnaise. Top tip: mix a little finely-grated Parmesan into the mayonnaise; people may not be able to identify it but they will comment on its unusual deliciousness)
♦ Grape jelly with roast pork
♦ There is a slightly less convincing argument that grapes can also substitute for tomatoes. The Taster hasn’t yet tried a Bacon Lettuce & Grape sandwich, but do let us know the results if you have a crack at it
♦ Sole Véronique is an easier-than-it-sounds Special Dish, involving grapes, vermouth and cream. Sole stocks are a little weak at the moment — see fishonline.org to find an appropriate substitute.
NB Cut grapes in half before feeding to babies or toddlers. Small whole grapes are easy for littl’uns to choke on
