CSA Veggies and An Award

On Friday, we got a beautiful box of CSA veggies.



So here is an embarrassing bit of information. A few weeks ago, we got grapes in our CSA box. I was very excited to try them and washed them right away. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed when I realized that they had lots of seeds. I stuck them into the fridge and forgot about them. Fortunately, though, I ended up using them in some green juice and it tasted amazing.

Yesterday, hubby tried the grapes in the new box and had the same reaction to the seeds I had a few weeks ago. I know that grapes having seeds is normal and in fact more natural as it is less likely that the plants were manipulated in a strange way. Yet, it takes extra time to take the seeds out, and this is where the embarrassment kicks in because in reality, it’s really not that big a deal. So I’m determined to eat the grapes soon!

Now on to the award. Marion from Affection for Fitness awarded me with the Liebster Blog award.

Thanks, Marion! Marion and I are about the same age and have lots of other things in common as well. She is really into fitness, and recently started a More Fruits and Veggies 30 Day Challenge. She has been posting lots of fruits and veggie info, and I have learned a lot. Plus, she loves jokes, and I often laugh when I visit her site. Again, thanks for the award Marion!

Questions: Do you mind seeds in grapes? What do you do with seeds in grapes? Eat them? Cut the grapes in half and take the seeds out? Juice the grapes? What have you been up to this weekend? We had a couple birthday celebrations, but more on those later.

Be well,
Andrea

    I don't like grapes much because I find them too sweet but when I eat them, I just split the seed.

    Andrea, you won't my giveaway, email me your info. :)

  3. Hi Andrea! Thanks for the sweet comment above, and congratulations! You really do have such a great blog.

    I don't mind seeds in grapes at all! I just eat a grape and spit them out, and then go for the next one. My favorite grapes, concord grapes have lots of seeds, but are still so worth it for the tangy flavor.

    I do like the wonderful selections of fruits/vegs you have up there.

    :-) Marion

  5. I don't normally buy grapes with seeds but recently I did. I would try and just spit it out after (very attractive I may add ;)) but I did end up accidentally swallowing them. Oh well.
    Congrats on the award!

  6. Congrats on your award! Love your gorgeous box of veggies too! I am not too fond of seeds in grapes and only buy seedless ones these days. I haven't had a grape with seeds in it in so long that I'm not sure what I would do....:-)

  7. LOL We are so spoiled: when I grew up grapes always had seeds. I just eat them if my grapes have seeds. Too much work to get them out.

  8. I hate grapes with seeds! I won't buy or eat them. HAHA! Such a diva attitude, I know. I find that if I eat them the grapes are bitter and it's just not lady like to spit, right? ;)

  9. I eat the seeds. Truth be told, I sort of like them! I sort of weird like that. ;-)

  10. I had a similar reaction recently with a batch of clementines! I'm still kind of avoiding them just because of the extra "work" involved...so silly!
