2. Place softened tomatillos, along with grapes, cilantro, garlic, and chili in a blender or food processor. Blend until slightly coarse.

Must try roasted grapes

Thank you, Terre! I've never heard of roasting grapes. I really must try.

I love grapes frozen, as Kamia mentions. Also, grapes are terrific roasted with potatoes and carrots! Organic grapes, always. I really miss them when they're out of season, but grapes are one of the fruits they spray heavily with pesticides.

I prefer my grapes frozen. Take them out and pop in your mouth. What a treat! I do like letting them also turn into raisins and adding them almost any type of salad. The combo of the sweet against the savory is quite enjoyable.
