I love sweet and spicy flavors, so I created these pickled grapes. They are excellent as an appetizer, a sneaky addition to salads or a topper in your favorite Bloody Mary. —Carla Hinkle, Memphis, Tennessee

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 banana pepper, sliced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, sliced
  • 1 red chili pepper, sliced
  • 4 cinnamon sticks (3 inches)
  • 2 inches fresh gingerroot, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon whole allspice
  • 4 drops hot pepper sauce
  • 1-1/2 pounds green grapes, halved
  • 1-1/2 pounds seedless red grapes, halved


  1. In a large saucepan, bring the first 11 ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until sugar is dissolved, 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Place grapes in a large bowl; add pickling liquid. Refrigerate, covered, at least 12 hours before serving.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
