What Can Grapes Be Made Into?

Grapes can be used for more than you may think. You’ve probably eaten them fresh by the handful, but did you know that you can use grapes in recipes too? From potato salad to chocolate covered grapes, and smoothies as well – recipes for grapes are endless. You can even include grapes in baked cakes and make your own sorbet! 

How Many Calories Are in Grapes?

While eating fruit in general is known to be a healthy option, it is always best to look at just how many calories they contain; especially if you’re watching what you eat. There are about 3.4 calories in a single grape which means there are approximately 68 calories in 20 grapes.

Are Grapes Good for You?

Whether you’re consuming red, green, or concord grapes – they all include incredible benefits. The nutrients and antioxidants found in grapes can help your overall health. A compound called Polyphenols can protect you against disease and environmental change, which is a benefit to your skin. They may also help you fight diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, lung disease, osteoporosis and heart disease. 

With all of that goodness should everyone eat grapes? Well, it depends on the individual and the type of diet they follow. For instance, grapes aren’t great for those on a keto diet and contain high quantities of carbs, with about 26 grams per cup. If you’re watching your calorie and fat intake, grapes are a good choice because they are low in calories and virtually fat-free.

What Happens When You Freeze Grapes?

Frozen grapes can be used in just about any recipe that calls for fresh grapes. Freezing can help them retain both their color and flavor. Note though, that while they will last longer in the freezer (about 10 – 12 months), when thawed they may be soft, soggy and lose their shape. Most often, people put grapes in the freezer to enjoy as a cool and crispy treat.
