Buying Grapes……………………….

To keep grapes at their freshest, store them unwashed in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. As noted here, fresh grapes usually keep well for about 1 to 2 weeks in the fridge; you can also freeze grapes for future snacking or use in cooking.

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs with Grape and Lime Salsa
By the end of May, the days are lengthening and the temperatures are beginning to rise—ideal conditions for dining ‘al fresco’, Italian for ‘in the fresh air’. To best enjoy the fresh air, try this light and simple chicken recipe to celebrate the end of cooler days and usher in the first months of summer.

Recipe Ingredients:
8 boneless chicken thighs, pounded thin (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup prepared honey mustard

Salsa:
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 cups red or green seedless grapes (or a combination of the two), cut in half
1/4 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon lime zest (optional)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:
1 – Prepare the grill. Chicken may be cooked on an oiled grilling pan. (The pan should be very hot before placing the chicken on it.)
2 – Brush both sides of each thigh with some honey mustard and set them aside.
3 – In a medium bowl, stir together the ingredients for the salsa and set it aside.
4 – Grill or sauté the chicken until just firm. Serve the chicken immediately with some of the salsa spooned alongside.
Makes 4 servings.

Love those Grapes……..

Serve Grapes cool, rather than at room temperature. Then to store Grapes wrap a paper towel around a Grape cluster and slide it into a plastic bag. Leave the bag open. Store it in the fridge.

The Raisin…….

Raisins pack more nutrition than their small size might indicate. When grapes are dehydrated to produce raisins, the nutrients become more concentrated, making a handful of raisins a snack rich in B vitamins, iron and potassium. Besides nutrients, raisins are also a good source of carbohydrates for energy
