  • 3 cups tap water 2793
  • 3 cups ultrafine granulated sugar 2794
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar 2795

Wash and thoroughly dry all grapes. Set aside. Make a simple syrup by bringing water and ultrafine sugar just to a simmer in a medium saucepan. Stir until sugar has dissolved completely. Let syrup cool completely, then add grapes to the syrup and stir to coat. Refrigerate grapes in the syrup overnight. The following day, drain grapes and use paper towels to blot the simple syrup clinging to the skins. (Save drained simple syrup for mixing cocktails or homemade sodas. Store in a lidded container in the fridge.) Line a large baking sheet with wax paper. Liberally, sprinkle ½ cup white granulated sugar over the paper-lined baking sheet. Roll grapes in the sugar to lightly coat them with the sparkle-y sugar. Use additional sugar as needed.

Let sugared grapes dry for one hour before serving
