Every season brings with it a bouquet of fresh produce that we can enjoy, even if for a limited period. Winter sees a range of fruits flooding the market that easily replace the mangoes and melons of summers. Grapes are one of those fruits that are much-awaited at the onset of this season and are heartily welcomed into our pantry. They are tiny balls-like berries that we can just gobble in the mouth to get a burst of tarty plus sweet flavours. Grapes come in many varieties - black grapes, red grapes, green grapes, white grapes, and more. They are so delicious and light to eat that you can easily finish a bunch of grapes in one go. Grapes can also be used to make jam, chutney, sauce, grape seed oil and, of course, wine.
