My husband, Matt, and I, along with our two children run a diversified farm in Edgar, Nebraska, which was passed down from Matt’s grandfather. About half of our family farm is used to raise crops, and half is pasture to raise cattle. Growing up on a diversified farm with corn, wheat, soybeans and hay, I have always been involved in the day-to-day duties on the farm.
My family is very close knit and busy, and truly believe that, “farming is good for family life!” I like this quick, but cool Grape Salad recipe for summer to feed my family!
2 lb. red or purple seedless grapes
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. sour cream
1 (8oz) Cool Whip
1/2 c. slivered almonds (optional)
Wash the grapes and remove all stems.
In a large bowl, mix the brown sugar and sour cream.
Fold in the Cool Whip.
Add the grapes and almonds and mix gently.
Refrigerate until serving.
