How to make frozen grapes
Have you ever wondered how to make frozen grapes?
Frosted grapes add a bright twinkle to even the most ordinary dishes. A fine coating added to the fruit gives it a bright, sparkly appearance, but leaves the grapes safe for eating. After finishing your entrée, serve the frosted grapes with coffee or hot tea. The grapes should still have a slight frosting on the outside and feel soft and cold on the inside. The classic version of frosted grapes uses egg whites, while the modern twist using corn syrup is a safer option.

Classic Frozen Grapes
For the classic frosted grapes recipe, divide a bunch of grapes into smaller individual bunches—separate four eggs, placing the egg whites in one bowl and tossing the egg yolks. You can save the egg yolks for a future dish if you desire. Beat the egg whites until slightly frothy, but not thick.
Wash the grapes under running water and pat dry with a paper towel. Dip the grapes into the egg whites and lightly coat each grape with the eggs. Carefully arrange the grapes on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and transfer it to the refrigerator. Freeze overnight or until the grapes feel firm to the touch. If you want more of a sparkle, roll the grapes in granulated sugar before freezing.
Modern Frozen Grapes
For the more modern take on the frosted grapes idea, pour 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a small bowl. Pour honey or corn syrup in a second bowl. Line a cookie sheet or baking sheet with wax paper and clean the grapes. Lightly pat each grape dry with a paper towel and break into smaller bunches.
Dip the grapes into the honey or corn syrup. For a mess-free option, dip a small paintbrush in the sticky mixture and lightly paint over each grape. Dip the grapes into the granulated sugar, while the honey is still wet and soft. Place the grapes on the cookie sheet and freeze for several hours or overnight.
Frozen Grapes Tips
If the honey coats your hands or you have problems making the sugar stick to the grapes, skip the rolling. Once you coat each grape with the sticky substance, sprinkle granulated sugar over the top of the grapes. Place the grapes on the cookie sheet before adding the sugar.
Use the frosted grapes as an accent for roast turkey, duck, or chicken. Elegantly arrange the smaller bunches on the outskirts of the dish. The natural color of the grapes shines through the frosted layer. For a more colorful look, use a combination of red and green grapes.
