Being from the South, muskydime (the proper spelling is muscadine, but my little ears always heard MUSKY DIME) is a word that I've heard my entire life; muskydime grape perserves were always rolling around somewhere in the house and really, I just love the word. A few weeks ago, I was home in TN and my parents had this gigantic bowl full of huge grapes out for snacking. It's always about, "What are we snacking on?" every time I go home and I just thought these grapes were awesome. So big and plump, just soaking in a big bowl of water (I guess so little gnats don't eat 'em up), ready to be tore into. They're funny little grapes because the minute you pop them in your mouth, you bite into the skin, slurp the actual interior out (it's really slimy) and even with the big hard seeds, let that whole loose ball slide right down your throat. No chewing, no nothing. And, you're left with this somewhat bitter skin to toss about with your tongue and eventually, I just spit that part out. My parents the whole thing, skin and all, but I just like playing with the skin in my mouth. I could literally chew on one for hours. I guess that's kinda gross~whatever, though. I've never seen these up here in Chicago, so it's just another thing to do while I'm home, chillin' with a grape skin.
