3 cups grapes plus about 1 cup liquid


  • 1 pound seedless green and/or red grapes, stems removed

  • ½ cup honey

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 4 inches stick cinnamon (optional)

  • Brandy


  1. Wash grapes; pat dry with paper towels. Place grapes in a sterilized 1-quart canning jar or glass jar with a lid. Add honey and sugar; stir gently. If using, add the stick cinnamon. Add enough brandy to cover grapes completely (about 1 cup brandy). Cover tightly. Swirl gently to mix. Store (steep) in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks or up to 4 weeks.

  2. To serve, spoon grapes and liquid into a dish and serve as an appetizer, paired with cheeses and crackers. (Or, serve a few grapes and the liquid in liqueur glasses. You can also chop the grapes and add to the batter for baked goods such as muffins.).

Directions to Attach for Gifting
