Top Tips

Here is how you can make my frozen grapes recipe perfectly every time!

Frozen grapes are enjoyed best after they have softened for just a few minutes at room temperature, when they have softened just a little they are like sorbet.

If you want your grapes to have a beautiful frosted look, give them a quick mist with water when you bring them out of the freezer, leave them for a few minutes and they will become frosted.

One of my favourite hacks for a summertime cheese platter is to freeze a bunch of grapes, frost it as I described above then add it to a platter. It will look great and it’s nice and cool.

You can also pop frozen grapes into your white wine or rosé, unlike ice cubes they don’t water down the taste.

My kids love them in their water, for a fancy kids drink

Whole grapes are a known choking hazard for young children so this treat is best suited to older children.

Once frozen your grapes will be best enjoyed frozen. Defrosted frozen grapes become a bit soggy, they are great in smoothies though.

Water mister at the ready to make the grapes look frosted.
