Full Circle with Baby Bear Counts One: Gobble, gobble, gobble

When I was young I used to find a thicket of these in my neighborhood, sit in the shadow of the vines, and eat grapes.

These are tiny and tart, but the intense grape taste makes them delectable.

We called them “Fox Grapes,” According to Wikipedia:  There is ample evidence that the labrusca was growing wild in North America centuries before the Europeans discovered the continent.

If a wild grape is growing, a turkey is going to find it.

  1. Actually muscadine’s are really good and easy to eat once you learn the trick. It’s hard to explain but basically you put one in your mouth. Pop it open with your teeth. Then chew enjoy the pulp around the seeds. Then spit out the seeds. Obviously, they are best enjoyed outside.
