This is one of those silly, useless things to do, but frosted grapes look pretty, and taste as they look. Serve at the end of a summer meal with a great glass of muscat, or use as an edible decoration for cake.

Ingredients

  • 6 small, perfect bunches of grapes
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 cup sugar

Method

Wash grapes, and dry carefully. Whisk egg white lightly. Use a basting brush to brush egg white onto the grapes, covering only the areas that will come in contact with the sugar. Dip or roll grapes lightly in caster sugar, then lay on a flat plate. Chill in refrigerator for several hours.
