New Year's Grapes



"In Spain, revelers mark the new year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one. "



Martha's idea of threading grapes onto skewers, and serving each in a glass of something bubbly just before the countdown is going to be added to our New Year traditions.

(If any of us stay awake that late.)
