Hi All,
As the Summer is already in, the Sun in always dancing with full energy!!!! The right time for juices, shakes and smoothies!!!  and of course for ice cubes in the freezer!
I am eating water melon and writing about grapes!!! 
I never knew or I never tried to know more about Grapes. It was always in my mind, that Grapes has lot of pesticides and it is not good while one has cold. But, when I went through the article, Grapes, it is an amazing fruit with lot of benefits. 
"Like other berries, grapes are highly nutritious and valuable with plenty curative agents. It has high content of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C.....
It has consumption tips also in the article : Grapes are among fruits that have high pesticide residues. Try to choose organic where possible. If not, take the trouble to soak the tiny fruits in water with some salt and vinegar to rid it of the pesticides.
Soak for about 10~15 minutes, then rinse and pat dry. Store in refrigerator to maintain its freshness for a few days. ..... "Read more here!!
