My mom used to keep grapes frozen in the freezer for my brother and I snack on in the summer. Aahhhh...fond memories! Thanks.

My parents had this hella old refrigerator that had "cold spots" where food would get so much colder than in the other (normal temperature) parts of the refrigerator. That's how I first experienced frozen grapes. The refrigerator is long gone but not the memory of frozen grapes.

acme, glad to oblige :)

mirth, i think it's the tremendous amount of sugar in each grapey globule that creates that creamy texture....

mary, i 'rents have a refrigerator that does the same. they always have unintentionally frozen fruit!

Santos! I'd forgotten about this lovely treat. Very useful given I now live in sweltering Singapore. Hope you are enjoying LA, SBL doesn't sound half bad, but then again, I've got the real thing here ;-). Stay cool...
