Pickled Grapes


Sweet and spicy, these preserves are as versatile as relish or olives. Serve them with nuts, spread on sandwiches, or add one or two grapes to a dry martini. Even though the grapes are ready to eat after 8 hours, they will continue to get more flavorful after a few days. Store up to 1 month in the fridge.
