First things first, when it comes to cleaning grapes, it’s crucial to remember that we want to enjoy their juicy goodness without any unwanted residues. To start off, grab a colander and place it in your sink. Then, gently pour the grapes into the colander, ensuring they are evenly spread out. This step allows any loose dirt or debris to fall away. Next, turn on a gentle stream of cool water and rinse the grapes under it. Make sure to rub the grapes gently with your fingers to remove any stubborn dirt or tiny pesticide residues. Once you are satisfied with the rinsing, carefully inspect the grapes for any damaged or spoiled ones. Now, transfer the clean grapes to a large bowl lined with paper towels, giving them a final pat dry to ensure no excess water remains. Lastly, transfer the grapes into a clean, airtight container and store them in the refrigerator to maintain their freshness. Now you’re ready to munch on those clean and refreshing grapes, guilt-free!
