After doing the macro shot of the raspberries yesterday, I thought I may as well follow it up with a macro shot of the grapes in my parents' garden as well.
You may be thinking, you can grow grapes in Alberta?! (Or some of you who may think we have winter all year round across the country) in Canada?!
It's true! This type of grape is called Valiant Grape. It's smaller than the average grape you buy in the supermarket but packs just as much flavour. Some describe it as tangy. My wife tried them for the first time this year and said, "They taste just like Welch's!".
They are great for jelly, and to be juiced. We have pints of grape juice in our storage room. Just add a little sugar if you like it to be sweeter, and add a little bit of ginger ale, or sparkling water for a little carbonation, and you won't be able to stop drinking this stuff. Supposedly there are many health benefits to drinking grape juice, but I'm not going to get into that discussion.
If you have your own garden, try these out next year. Make sure the vines have something to grow up on, and that they get plenty of sunlight. By this time next year, you'll be eating fresh grapes like a king!
