Any ideas on how to use up a big bunch of mixed green and red seedless grapes?

Desert: Mix sour cream and brown sugar. Cut the grapes in half and toss them with the sour cream mixture. Delicious.

Someone already mentioned sugaring them with egg white and freezing, but if you're feeling less ambitious than that, you can just pop them in the freezer, unadorned. In fact, they're so good frozen that I find it hard to eat them any other way!

Roast grapes 400-450F tossed with raw/demerara sugar & chopped rosemary, for 20-30m covered and about 15 min uncovered. Maybe add splash of white wine or verjus or champagne vinegar? These will keep, refrigerated, for a few weeks and can be added to breads, salads, muffins & scones. or rough chopped/pureed and made into a quick compote. In summer I like to roast grapes for white sangria.

One of the best (and easiest) main dishes ever. Get some hot and sweet Italian sausages, you want a mix of both. Par boil them in some water in a saute pan on the stove top for about 10 minutes. You should pierce the sausages with a thin knife before poaching them to help render the fat. Get a heavy roasting pan and melt some butter in it. Toss in the grapes and roll them around to coat. Nestle in the sausages, and toss into a pre-heated 450° oven for half an hour. Remove the grapes & sausages to a platter, and deglaze the pan with some balsamic vinegar. Let that reduce by about half, and pour over the sausages and grapes. Serve with chunky smashed potatoes.

You can also sugar them with egg white, freeze, and bring out for a nice martini with vodka and a splash of sparkling wine.

Clafouti is a good idea, as is a nice big salad with roasted pumpkin seeds and chunks of a good (imported) bleu cheese - Stilton is good. Simple oil and vinegar with grainy mustard is nice.

Also- grape clafoutis ( there's a recipe for it in Hugh Atkinson's new cookbook)

Roast the grapes, add some toasted walnuts and make a warm bacon vingarette. Sprinkle with crumbled blue or goat cheese. Man, I can go for that now.

Refer to the recipes for Strawberry or Raspberry Shrub (http://www.food52.com/recipes/12924_strawberry_shrub) -- on one of them, in the comments, you'll see how I made it with grapes. Loved it!

If you have some leftover roast turkey or chicken, make a salad with the grapes, celery and pecans.
