Cultivated since the dawn of civilization, grapes are a beloved treat that also happen to be nutritious. Grapes average just 62 calories per cup and can be eaten out of hand or added to dishes such as chicken salad or fruit salad. Red grapes are considered sweeter, green slightly more sour and black grapes have a more intense fruity flavor. Grapes are a source of vitamin C to boost the immune system and vitamin K to aid blood clotting and bone health. Red grapes contain resveratrol, an antioxidant thought to reduce inflammation and benefit heart and brain health.
Keep unwashed grapes in a plastic bag in the refrigerator up to two weeks. Rinsing introduces excess moisture, which can speed up decay.
Before eating, place grapes in a colander, rinse with cold water, then set grapes on paper towels to drain. Use a sharp paring knife when halving grapes for a recipe.
