G is for Grapes

I'm a picky grape eater. If the grape is too soft and squishy then I can't eat it. It doesn't matter which kind of grape it is either. Also, if it's a green grape, I prefer to eat them frozen rather than just refrigerated but I'd still eat them if they were refrigerated. I just like them better frozen. Red grapes I can eat anyway (as long as they are squishy).

There is a reason for this post, I swear. I found a recipe on Pinterest for Glittery Sour Patch Grapes. When I saw that they needed jello, I jumped right on that because I have a lot of jello. The post I found was on a blog called The Spotted Pony. And I admit that this recipe isn't mine but it's something I wanted to share.

Here is what you need:
  • A pound of GREEN grapes
  • Watermelon Jello
  • Lemon Jello (sugar free)
- Mix Watermelon Jello and Lemon Jello in a bag, and then pour a little onto a plate.

- Pull the grapes from the stem and rinse. Once the grapes are damp but not dripping, put a few onto the plate and coat them with the Jello powder as thoroughly as you can. When you finish, place coated grapes into a bowl and repeat the process until all the grapes are coated in the Jello mixture.

- Let grapes chill in the fridge for at least an hour. According to the blog, "the longer they sit, the better they taste."

They are pretty good. I forgot how sour some of these green grapes could be but I like them. I might stick them in the freezer though.

  2. I am the same way about grapes, can't stand them to be mushy. I love green grapes the best, and am very intrigued by that recipe! I love sour patch kids, and I can imagine it would be a great mix.

  3. ohh my mouth was watering as I read.
    Cute little recipe :)
