Fun with Fruit :)

Microwaved Grape.  Nikon D80
17th February 2014

There are many things you can do with grapes; one which is good fun, but not something I condone doing of course, is to put it in the microwave.

It is not just a case of cooking it whole, no, rather you cut it carefully from top to bottom, but leaving a small piece of skin attaching the two halves (as below).

When placed in the oven, a small antenna is made which captures the microwave energy very well and the highest current flow is at the little join between the halves.  

A nice grape-flavoured firework ensues :)

Just make sure you try it in someone else's oven.
