Events and Celebrations

  • ½ bunch of green seedless grapes
  • ½ bunch of red seedless grapes
  • a few physalis (optional), with some leaves left intact
  • 125 g (4 oz) icing sugar
  • 4–5 teaspoons orange or lime juice
  • 50 g (2 oz) caster sugar

Wash the grapes and the physalis (if using), then pat dry with kitchen paper. Snip the grapes into tiny bunches of 2–3 grapes.

Sift the icing sugar into a bowl, then gradually mix in the fruit juice to make a smooth, thick frosting.

Dip the grapes a bunch at a time into the frosting, then dip the physalis. Arrange the grapes and physalis on a wire rack set over a baking sheet. Leave in a cool place for 1 hour or until hardened.

Sprinkle the grapes and physalis with caster sugar before serving.
