Guu's Frozen Grapes?

Typing this while I eat some grapes I threw in the freezer an hour ago. They're not the same *sniff*. Anyone know what kind of grapes they use? They looked like regular red grapes to me, and the waiter said they were just frozen...

    I think you just have to wait longer than an hour... Maybe 24h? At any rate, an hour doesn't seem long enough. I'm pretty sure they're just regular grapes!

      That's what I thought too, but the texture seems a bit off. They were completely frozen when I pulled them too; I figured it was easier to wait 5 min at a time to thaw then to have to keep putting them back in the freezer. Maybe I'll try muscat grapes because they have that gooey (Guu-y?) texture to them...

      The best grapes I've tried for frozen grapes are the Muscat variety which seems to be widely available this year (it's sweeter than the usual red-green-black). If you leave it in for 3 hours it will probably be frozen absolutely solid. It's better if you let it thaw just a little bit so you get a thin shell of sweet liquid with ice in the center.

      I haven't tried it yet but it must work great with those ontario blue grapes - I think they are called "Coronation" grapes.

        It does work really well with Coronation grapes... I freeze a ton of them every summer and eat them throughout the year!
