traditional form in Armenian churches around the globe. So it’s time to appreciate this sweet fruit of the vine.

are numerous ways to use grapes in recipes – cakes, compotes, candies, jams, salads – you name it!

Grapes with Yogurt and Honey

Grapes with Yogurt and Honey

Makes about 4 servings


1 large bunch seedless red or green grapes (or a
combination of the two)

1 cup plain yogurt

2 tablespoons honey (light-brown sugar may be substituted)

Cinnamon for garnish, optional


1. Remove from stems from grapes and discard. (Only use
firm, unblemished grapes.) Wash grapes and pat dry. Grapes can be left whole if they’re on the smaller side. However, if using large grapes, you may want to slice them in half first. 

Place in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together yogurt and honey.

3. Place grapes in individual serving bowls. Place a dollop of yogurt-honey
mixture over grapes. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon, if you wish – and enjoy!
