Grapes- Concord

Grapes- Concord

Description

The skin of a Concord grape is typically dark blue or purple, and often is covered with a lighter-colored "bloom" which can be rubbed off. It is a slip-skin variety, meaning that the skin is easily separated from the fruit. Concord grapes have large seeds and are highly aromatic.

Applications/Techniques

Press them, let them sit with their skins for a while and strain for a wonderful base for vinaigrette, juice for granita, a reduced syrup for desserts, or sauce for pork, duck or other poultry. Concord grapes make excellent jam and jelly for out-of-this-world PB&Js.
