How To Eat Grapes With Seeds

Unless you are just juicing them or cooking them down and straining out the seeds, eating grapes with seeds can be a challenge if you haven't perfected the art. Of course, you can add them to your granola and just pretend they are part of the cereal, like grape nuts (which they are, actually). I find it most satisfying to eat a handful all at once, and these grapes are so much more flavorful than any seedless variety. Here's how to do it.

Think of the grape as a piece of hard candy. You can suck on a piece of hard candy, roll it in your teeth, and even bite it a little without breaking it, right? Grapes with seeds can be bitten in the same way, where you break the skin, release the jucy, gummy interior, and stop before you break the seeds. Then use your tongue to scooch the seeds aside so you can chew the skin and insides. Send the seeds right back and swallow them whole with the skins and the rest. Sometimes if you chew slowly without your teeth meeting, the seeds just sort of find their way out of the line of danger.
