Hi, I'm Teca Thompson. Farm-To-Table Chef. Today, we're talking about how to cut grapes to reduce a choking hazard. So, here I have some washed red grapes that I've taken off the vine. And a really simple way, is just to make them more bite sized. So, I'm just going to take some grapes,and I'm just going to cut them in half, making them more bite sized, like so. And we'll just place them in the bowl. And that is a lot better, as far as being bite-sized,and your children or anybody else not choking on them. Another thing I like to do, it's labor-intensive, but I think, it's worth it, especially for small children, is peeling the grapes. Because the peel tends to kind of get caught in the throat and is a choking. So, I'm just going to take my little paring knife and a grape in my hand, I'm going to start from the top, where it's attached to the vine. And I'm just going to get under the skin and peel it down. And like I said, this is a little labor intensive, my son really loves them when I do this, though. And you'll lose a little it of the flesh, which is completely fine. And then, you have a beautiful peeled grape. I'm Chef Teca Thompson, and that is how to prepare grapes to reduce a choking hazard. Thank you for watching.
