Directions:
Wash and thoroughly dry clusters of seedless grapes. Dip into unbeaten egg white, being careful that each grape is well-coated. Now roll in granulated sugar. Place in icebox and allow to chill until the sugar hardens. When ready, the grapes have an exquisite frosting. Try frosting mint leaves by the same method.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Aunt Zephyr was Nana Emma's sister and every bit as great a cook. In the summer-time, she would hollow out a large striped watermelon, fill it with ripe fruit chunks and melon balls, then garnish with her frosted grapes. They sparkled like sunlight on water. In her words the grapes were to be used, "as a centerpiece, to garnish salads or tea platters, or to encircle molds of any salad."
