I’ve heard people say that you can pickle anything. I sort of thought they were being hyperbolic. After trying pickled grapes, I’m pretty sure the statement is true: anything can be pickled.
I was out, picking grapes with Not Far From the Tree, and thinking to myself out loud, “There’s only so many ways to preserve grapes: jelly, juice, syrup…,” when a fellow picker piped up, “And pickles!”
My mouth dropped and my brain started whirling as she explained the general process. I had to try it! I love all thing different and non-traditional.
The report? White wine recipe is mild, you hardly notice the pickling. Tasty but not the mind-blowing combination of flavors I was expecting. The red wine vinegar combo was though! Sweet grapes, tart vinegar, warm cinnamon and cloves, spicy black peppercorns – trust me when I say, you’ve never tasted anything like these before!
