These are fresh, seedless muscat grapes that I bought this morning at Whole Foods Market. They are only $1.99 a pound and have an amazing flavor.
These grapes have that flowery, honeyed sweetness of scuppernongs, but without that brassy, in-your-face grapiness. They make me think much more of peaches and apricots, as does muscat wine.
Oh, yeah. They’re from Chile. I promise to go back to being a locavore next week.
