grapes

How do you store your grapes once you bring them home? Do you wash them all first do you stir them in the fridge or just on the counter?

  • I think you are supposed to wash grapes, but we never do, no one has gotten sick, and we keep them in the fridge. my theroy is, they were cold when i bought them so i assume they need to stay cold for them to stay fresh.

  • I wash them as soon as I get them home and put them in a big bowl in the fridge.

  • I wash them all, let them air dry on a towel, and toss them in the fridge
    They never last long, we love grapes so they're eaten pretty quickly!

  • You need to wash them, that cloudy stuff on them is pesticide and you won't get sick now but you increase your chances of cancer. they should be kept in the fridge and they will last longer

  • I normally wash, stem, and set out, and they're gone within hours. I try not to store them because they get gross in my fridge. OR, if I don't get to them immediately, they set out til the next day, then I wash, stem, lay out to dry, and I throw them in the freezer and we eat them frozen.

  • We usually keep them in the fridge but that is because we like them cold.

  • I wash them and then in the frig. In the summertime it's always a good treat to freeze them and have little frozen treats to eat and toss in certain drinks for little mini ice cubes that don't melt and you can eat after the drink is gone.
