Best way to store grapes?

In or out of the fridge? Plastic bag or plastic colander?

Otherwise?

Thanks!


Lee

Out of the bag, always. I like to keep them out of the fridge for some reason, but if they are not going to get eaten soon then the fridge will make them last longer.

For much longer term storage we will use the freezer and eat them frozen.

Like GB, I too leave them out if they are going to be consumed promptly. Other then that, the fridge will keep them longer.

I LOVE frozen grapes!

I prefer all my fruit at room temp, however, grapes will keep longer in the fridge. I usually put a small bowl on the counter with the rest in the fridge and refill as needed.

Being we have several grape vines growing, I pick them, bring them in and remove the grapes from the stem and rinse them..Little critters in there you know Then, eat a few and put the rest on a clean dish towel and into the refrigerator..I like them at room temp, but they last longer being kept cool.

Frozen grapes? And they defrost to a good texture? Wow - I'll try it! Mine don't usually get stored for that long, but every now and again i think I'll be clever and buy more than I can eat, and then the inevitable happens and they get binned...now I'll freeze them.
