I was at Trader Joes the other day (my favorite grocery store), and saw that they had champagne grapes on sale. I’ve usually avoided these grapes since they are so tiny (blueberry size), but they caught my eye this time because of the suggestions on the container (use these in scones, cake, etc). I have been wanting to make muffins, and realized these would be great in them.
The grapes are similar to blueberries when cooked, so to make my muffins, I adapted this blueberry muffin recipe. The Champagne Grape Muffins turned out super well, and I think I may need to buy these grapes more often!
