Festive Pickled Grapes



  • 1 lb red or black seedless grapes
  • 1 C white wine vinegar
  • 1 C cane sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic , cut in half
  • t grown mustard seeds
  • 1 t whole black peppercorns
  • 1 (2½ cinnamon stick
  • ¼ t sea salt


  1. Thoroughly rinse and dry the grapes, removing them from the stems. Using a paring knife, trim away the very end of the grape that was attached to the stem, exposing a bit of flesh inside. Fill a quart jar with the grapes and raw garlic halves.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cool the brine then pour over grapes (you can pour while still warm, but it will wilt the grapes a little). Chill the brined grapes in their jar in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight. Serve cold. Divine with a cheese course, sliced atop salads, or diced into chutneys.
