- Green seedless grapes
- Lime jello
I have tried this with both sugar free and regular jello and it tastes the same either way. I think in the future I will only use sugar free jello since who needs the extra sugar? On the Pure Sugar blog they used Melon Fusion Jello but already had lime on hand so I went with that. It adds the perfect tart taste to the grapes.
First wash your grapes thoroughly. You will want to be sure they are plenty wet for the next step so that the jello is able to stick to them.
Place the grapes on a skewer. This is something kids can help with as well. When I do have the kids help, I make sure to cut the sharp tip off so they don't get poked. Pour the packet of jello into a shallow plate.
Turn the skewer in the jello powder to get it fully covered. If this doesn't fully cover the grapes use a spoon to scoop on the powder.
You can also make these sour grapes without the skewer. Simply drop some grapes onto the plate and roll them around until they are completely coated. Pop them in the freezer for a few hours and they are ready to enjoy. I have left these in the freezer overnight as well and they are just as good.
These sour grapes could not be simpler to make. The sour jello coating really does make you feel like you are eating candy.
