Chef Tips

We recommend using ripe Bartlett, Anjou or Comice pears. They are the sweetest.

While you may not be able to find frozen grapes at the store, you can easily freeze grapes at home. Spread the grapes on a pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, then put the pan in the freezer. (This helps the grapes to freeze separately, rather than in clumps.) Once the grapes are frozen, you can transfer them to a storage bag.
