From my childhood i love black grapes very much. During my childhood days we get the black grapes which has seeds in it. My sister doesn't like that and so i always get a big portion for me. Also i generally do not discad the seed while eating, i just carefully bite it and swallow woth the seed. My sister used to tease me, that I will get a grapes tree from my tummy as i am swallowing the seeds. Later we started gettign the seedless varitey. Even after coming to Singapore, i buy the grapes regularly. I have posted a grape orange juice recipe too few years back. When i was casaully waiting for a friend near a shop, i happened to see these umbrella shaped ice lolly moulds in a small shop nearby. So picked this up and made thsi grape popsicle. Varsha wanted to post some summer cooler recipes, but she is bit busy with her studies as she is in 10th grade now. Anyways, stay tuned for her summer recipe post soon.
