Frozen Black Grapes (OG)
I wiped and sorted these grapes, just as I did the green and red variety previously. One bunch didn't pull off the vine very well without splitting, which I took to be a sign of less than ripeness. The rest of the grape bunches picked much cleaner.
We taste tested our first batch after an overnight in the freezer. These have a noticeably softer "bite" when fully frozen, which I attribute to the extra sugars working as an antifreeze.
