Fresh Grapes Liven Up Any Meal (NAPSA) - When the days grow shorter, there's good news for anyone who longs for fresh fruit. That's because it's peak grape-growing season in warm and sunny Chile.
By adding grapes to your winter diet, when fresh fruit is eaten less often, you know you and your family are getting important nutrients that are otherwise lost to summer. Besides being a very good source of vitamins C and K, grapes contain phytonutrients, which research has shown to have important health benefits.
Store grapes in a plastic bag in the refrigerator and wash them when you're ready to use them.
Green or red, grapes are perfect as a snack, but don't overlook them in your meals. For example, Curried Chicken and Chilean Grapes can be served hot with couscous or rice, or at room temperature in a pita. Here are more grape ideas:
