a public service announcement

If you come across muscat grapes in your grocery store, grab them up like there's no tomorrow. Elbow that little old lady out of the produce aisle and be greedy. I'm being serious. These are, without a doubt, the best grapes I've ever eaten. Rosy and golden in color, they taste like a musky, slightly sweet glass of white wine, which makes sense because that is what they are primarily used for, especially sparkling wines like Asti Spumante.

Use them to fancy up a cheese plate, roast them with pork, freeze them for an icy snack, or just eat a pound of them straight out of the bag, like I did at work last week, dribbling juice all over my keyboard. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Muscat, Muscat, candle light
Nibblin' on bacon
Chewin' on cheese
And they whirl and they twirl and they tango
Singin' and jinglin' a jangle
Float like the heavens above
Looks like Muscat Love

POP: I haven't seen them at Union Market, but they have them at Whole Foods.

Daniel: Love me some C&T!

LOL! Poor little old lady standing near the muscat grapes :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love cheese and am practically drooling right now!

Lisa said...

Oh, Maris. They are SO worth it. Start elbowing!
