Every season offers a variety of seasonal fresh foods that we can savour. The mangoes and melons of the summer are easily replaced by a wide variety of fruits that are in abundance during the winter. One fruit that is eagerly anticipated at the start of this season and is warmly welcomed into our cupboard is grapes. These are little berries that resemble balls that we may just gulp down to experience a blast of acidic and sweet flavours. There are many different types of grapes, including black grapes, red grapes, green grapes, and white grapes. You may easily consume a whole bunch of grapes in one sitting because they are so delectable and light to eat. In addition to wine, grapes can be used to make jam, chutney, sauce, grape seed oil, and so forth.
