Add these gorgeous spicy-tart grapes to an antipasto platter or cheese plate or stir them into chicken or mixed green salads. Guests will love the complex flavors. But the best part: prep time is 10 minutes and "pickling" happens in the fridge in just a few hours.

How to Make It

Step 1

Pack grapes into 4 (1-pt.) canning jars with lids. Add 1 rosemary sprig to each jar.

Step 2

Bring vinegar, next 4 ingredients, 1 cup water, and remaining 2 rosemary sprigs to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat, and discard rosemary sprigs. Pour hot vinegar mixture over grapes. Cover loosely, and let cool to room temperature (about 30 minutes). Seal and chill 1 hour before serving. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week.

As skeptical as I first was that this recipe would be worth trying, was I proven wrong! It's pretty, simple to make, and perfect on a cheese platter! Thanks, DebraM48...

I used this recipe as gifts and got raves from everyone. The recipients thought this was a delight as I am a Yankee from New Hampshire and thought this would be a great gift from the kitchen as a new way to use grapes and everyone just loved it. And I will definitely use it again.
