Another farm discovery...

One of my favorite books as a teenager (remember Cheney Duval, Briana and Molly?) mentioned a certain type of grapes, called muscadines.

I always had this image in my head of what they looked like and tasted like...

When we moved to the farm we knew we had a grape arbor in the backyard, but didn't know what kind. This spring and summer we have watched and watched them...but they didn't look like any we had ever seen before.

We finally got a chance to ask the original owners of the house...and they told us they were muscadines.

They are perfectly ripe now...and the kids (especially Ella) absolutely love eating them. You don't eat the skins...you just kind of "pop" the insides into your mouth.

We had these in my backyard. Great ammo for a slingshot - or for the occasion snack, whichever was needed at the moment.
