Wild Muscadines :)

I was waiting on the mailman today, looked up and look what I found!
Muscadines ^_^

I took two of my children down there to show them my new discovery :)

They had to pick and taste them, even though they weren't ripe yet.

Our dog Peaches followed us down there too ^_^ She loves chasing rabbits, wild turkey and deer ;)

I can't wait for these to ripen on the vine so we can make muscadine jelly :)

Muscadines?! I've never even heard or seen those things in my life! Do they grow in Canada? What do they taste like?

To be honest, I know about as much as you do about them lol. They are a wild grapes and right now they taste like a sour apples to me. I'm sure once they ripen I'll be able to give you a better description of what they really taste like. I have no idea where they grow either. Thanks for stopping by though :)

I have never heard of these either! But I am intrigued! I think your blog is so sweet - glad I found you.

I finally got to taste a ripe one today and I can't really compare it to anything I've ever tasted before but I will say that the skin is very tart. Just like green apples :) Tiffany that is super nice of you to say. Thank you!! I hope you enjoy it.
