I have frozen them and when removed from freezer toss lightly with sugar and serve immediately with anything that seems appriopiate, even alone on a cheese plate. Still frozen is the key here because they are mushy and unappetizing when they thaw. By the way, I tried your gargonzola butter on my steak, fabulous. Thanks for the idea.

I love these ideas! I was going to post the idea of frozen grapes, but you guys are fast.

I love frozen grapes as a meal on the hottest, muggiest night in the summer when I can lounge in my (fill in attire,or lack of) an me miserable in the humidity. The grapes become God-like.

I am intrigued with the idea of cooking for hunters at a lodge! I spotted a property in Pa. that would fit the bill. It means a career change, but its a hunting cummunity in Potter county Pa. ...any tips?
