Have one of these grape peelers in your utensil drawer? Maybe you don’t even know that it’s a grape peeler. Here’s what it looks like and how to actually use this genius little tool.
I know, it looks like some sort of manicure tool. But it is in fact for grapes. Young raisins.
How to Use a Grape Peeler.
- Hold grape between your thumb and forefinger.
2. Slip the tip of the wire end of the peeler under the skin of the grape.
3. Swirl the peeler around the grape until all the skin is loosened.
4. Pop the grape out.
Now you’re ready for some pretty fancy grape stuff. I’m not sure what exactly, but anytime the skin is removed from a food you don’t expect it to be removed from it’s automatically categorized as fancy food.
Being true to my mental word I returned to the store to buy it. I walked directly to the cash, placed my fingers on the peeler and then it happened. A flash of a kaleidoscope of colours and then everything goes blank.
On December 19th, 2010, I got sucked into the kitchen store vortex.
Those who saw me that day say he I no longer in control of myself. My body was a complete blur as I flew from rack to rack grabbing every fun thing in sight. From what I hear from the locals, at one point I even barked like a dog. I wouldn’t know. I don’t remember.
It wasn’t until I returned home and woke from a nap that I realized I’d also bought a kitchy measuring cup, an ice cube tray in the shape of dentures, a set of magnets based on iPhone icons, a coffee mug, a fancy orange flavoured chocolate, another ice cube tray in the shape of a skull and crossbones, and a cast iron mortar and pestle. And the peeler.
The $100 grape peeler. Also available on Amazon in a new and improved style.
