1 quart


  • 1 pound seedless red grapes

  • 1 ½ cups apple cider vinegar

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup raw sugar

  • ½ small red onion, cut into slivers

  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard seeds

  • 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 1 star anise pod

  • 1 whole allspice


  1. Remove stems and discard any grapes that aren't firm and unblemished. Place grapes in a quart-size mason jar and set aside.

  2. Combine vinegar, water, sugar, red onion, mustard seeds, peppercorns, cinnamon stick, bay leaf, star anise, and allspice in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until onion is softened, about 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and cool for 15 minutes.

  3. Carefully pour cooled liquid over grapes and gently swirl the jar to incorporate spices. Cover the jar and refrigerate 1 day before eating.


Once cooled, grapes are ready to eat but best the next day.
