Autumn is time for the tart, tangy, pungent taste of Concord grapes. While not many are grown in Concord, Massachusetts as a commercial crop, you will find small numbers of fresh ones for sale at local farm stands and some supermarkets. And of course, arbors of Concord grapes can be found all over town in private backyards.
Concord Grapes aren't just tasty stuff -- they're darned healthy, too. Prevention Magazine recently called the Concord grape the "gold standard" for anti-oxidant content -- the highest of all fruits and vegetables.
But beyond grape jam and jelly, what to do with this year's crop? Below are some recipes from around the web using Concord grapes, plus some other information about these dark-purple wonders. How do these recipes come out? You tell us! We haven't tested them ourselves...
