How much calories do grapes have?
the purple grapes. ( theirs green to ) but I want to know how much calories purple grapes have?
Hi, hope this helps;
A single grape weighs from 2 to 5 grams and contains 2-3 calories depending on the size. Different types of fresh grapes—red grapes, white grapes, purple or blue grapes—have almost the same calorie count. A cup of fresh grapes (92 grams) has 62 calories. Calories in grapes come from carbohydrates as grapes are very high in sugar. As most fruits, grapes are very low in fat and protein. It may be important to you if you monitor the ratio of carbohydrates, protein and fat in your diet or follow the low-carb style of eating. Grapes contain vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and iron. Grapes are a very good source of manganese, an essential mineral supporting the immune system.
When are grapes in season?
I love grapes but the ones I'm seeing in supermarkets look not so appealing recently. I'm wondering if it's just because grapes aren't in season in August and September.
Grape harvest season depends on the region the grapes are being grown in. Some start around the beginning of September and others stay on the vine until the last days before frost because they get sweetest that way.
What kind of meats go well in a cheese fondue? What else besides bread would you suggest?
I am new to fondues and we just bought a fondue pot. We are making a three cheese fondue and would like to know what goes well with it as far as meats and vegetables. What do you suggest and what have you done that worked well?
Cheese fondue is usually served with cut-up cubes of hearty breads, the type of bread depends upon the cheese in the fondue, but a good French bread works with any type of cheese fondue. Try a rye or marble bread with a cheddar cheese fondue for a different flavor combination.
In addition to bread for dipping in the cheese you could try wedges of apple, slices of pear, grapes, steamed vegetables like broccoli or cauliflower, steamed asparagus spears, even pre-cooked baby potatoes.
Remember the cheese will not cook anything, unlike oil fondue where you cook the meat in boiling oil. So if you want to use meat with your cheese fondue make sure it is pre-cooked. Beef goes well with a cheddar cheese or Gouda where chicken cubes go best with fondues containing a lot of white cheeses like Gruyere, Swiss, smoked Gouda and the like. You can also cut up "sea legs" (the fake crab stuff) for dipping in your fondue!
