made a bit of a mistake on my internet food shopping blush.

meant to bring some in to work today to share but forgot and am not in till Fri after today.

we eat a lot of grapes but not that many.....any bright ideas?

Freeze them smile

They will keep for ages, and they make great ice cubes, or just a good little snack too.. Icy grapes are lovely.

Meant to add, split them up a bit and put them in little bags of a dozen each or so.

Wine?

Yep - learn to make wine grin

Juice them? Maybe with a couple of kiwi fruit or carrots/apples?

Tread on them - and turn them into vino grin

Make grape jelly - it's declicious in peanut butter sandwiches.

Halve and pip them and use them as decoration for a cheesecake or iced sponge, or to make little grape tarts or trifle.

Fillet of sole with white grapes is a classic dish, and grapes go well with other fish too.

Blue cheese, grape, and onion tart - serve with a salad.

Let your imagination run riot or browse the net for specific recipes.

Give them to Stu Francis?

Just leave them on the side near my children, they will disappear in about 40 seconds flat ;)

Agree with freeze them or juice/blend them for smoothies.

northerngirl41 Tue 09-Aug-11 13:57:45

Chop them in half, smother in whipped double cream, sprinkle with brown sugar and stick under the grill to make an oh-so-lovely cheat's creme brule.

what a waste notso, he would only crush them.

What great ideas...!!!

Think i will freeze a punnet in small bags and make some juice/ smoothies with the rest...

LadyClariceCannockMonty Tue 09-Aug-11 14:05:01

I'm coming over for a smoothie! Put some kiwi and ginger in mine. Ta. wink

Am i the only one who feels like a pig whith threads like this one?

4 punnets of grapes in this house wouldn't be a problem, they would go in 2 days .

notso Tue 09-Aug-11 14:07:56

grin @ blackeyedsusan.

HellonHeels Tue 09-Aug-11 16:29:56

I could down a punnet or two of grapes in a day no problem blush That is why I'm fat though.

RedBlanket Tue 09-Aug-11 16:33:23

My DCs would have scoffed the lot within a day!

rogersmellyonthetelly Tue 09-Aug-11 16:37:54

Eat them all and then spend the next 2 days sitting on the toilet. I can't resist grapes, but I always regret it later blush

Delia did that ghastly recipe with grapes and tarragon stuffed into a chicken.

I'm hoping you're a vegetarian.

LollipopViolet Tue 09-Aug-11 16:39:39

Make wine smile

Or grape juice if you prefer smile

I once ordered 7kg of pears and 7kg of courgettes. I had intended to order 7 items.....................Friends and family had to share in the bounty smile

worraliberty Tue 09-Aug-11 16:45:36

Bit late now but you can refuse them on the doorstep and they'll refund you.

HedleyLamarr Tue 09-Aug-11 16:47:47

Take them to the supermarket and eat them whilst you walk around. wink

Fifis25StottieCakes Tue 09-Aug-11 16:50:49

grape surpise anyone

desserts sorted grin

Laquitar we could polish 4 punnets off in a couple of days, no problem. DS1 on his own would eat the lot if allowed to smile
