    200g Granulated Sugar

    60ml Water

    350g Red Grapes

    75g Caster Sugar


    Place the granulated sugar into a saucepan along with the water and place on a medium heat.

    Do not stir the sugar but carefully move the pan to help the sugar dissolve.

    Cook for 10-15 minutes until the sugar has dissolved.

    Remove the syrup from the heat.

    Cut the grapes into small bunches.

    Cover over a tray with baking paper and sprinkle over half of the caster sugar.

    Carefully add the grapes into the sugar syrup and coat well.

    When the grapes are fully coated use a slotted spoon to remove them, and any excess syrup, and place them on the lined tray.

    Sprinkle the remaining caster sugar over the grapes and leave for 1-2 hours to dry.

    Store in an airtight container for up to a week.

    When ready to serve enjoy them as a treat or use to decorate cakes.
