How to Make It

  1. Snip grapes from center stem to create small clusters. Lay on a dehydrating tray, leaving space between clusters.

  2. Dry in a dehydrator until wrinkled and barely soft when squeezed, about 30 hours, turning clusters at least once for even drying. Store airtight at room temperature.
