You can use all-natural ingredients and still get a grape soda that's bold in both color and flavor. More

Let Them Eat: Concord Grape Cake

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

Concord grapes' scent and flavor are potent and concentrated. Eating one induces temporary synesthesia: I'm positive I'm tasting the color purple when I bite into one. This cake is meant to allow those qualities shine, exult, sing. More

Concord Grape Cake

You'll find grapes in the cake, and also in a gorgeous patent leather-shiny layer of jam on top. It's crumbly, moist, sticky, glossy, and, how else to describe it: grape-y. More

Preserved: Concord Grape Jam

Sweets Lucy Baker 4 comments

There are very few foods in this world that I truly hate, but one of them is grape jelly. I think it's fake-tasting, too sweet, and lacking in any true grape flavor. I cringe when my toast comes with those little purple packets at restaurants, and I prefer my peanut butter sandwiches with strawberry jam. And yet, the concord grapes looked so beautiful (so autumnal!) at the farmers' market this week I just couldn't resist buying bunch upon bunch. Guess what? Homemade concord grape jam tastes nothing like the sticky-sweet supermarket kind. More

Concord Grape Jam

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 3 comments

Homemade concord grape jam tastes nothing like sticky-sweet supermarket grape jelly. It has a deep, concentrated grape flavor, and is equally tart and sweet. A jar of this jam would make an excellent fall harvest-inspired gift. Try it sandwiched between peanut butter cookies or swirled into banana bread batter. More

Pie of the Week: Mini Grape Galettes

Sweets Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

If I were a poet, I'd write an ode to the grapes that have graced my local greenmarket recently. I love their pucker-inducing skins, and their sweet juicy insides. I love the way that the squishy, gelatinous centers burst out of the skins and squeak between my teeth. I love the seed-spitting contests my husband and amused ourselves with childishly from a blanket in the park. And, most of all, given their perfect combination of sweet, tart and colorful, I'm loving them for baking. More

Drinking in Season: Concord Martini

Serious Eats Kelly Carámbula 3 comments

Since the grapes have such a strong flavor and color, I created a simple martini that really allowed it to shine. Fresh concord grape juice is paired with a hefty serving of vodka and a splash of white vermouth to make a cocktail that is 100% adult. Each sip starts with the vivid, sweet flavor of the grapes and ends with the warm, sharp taste of vodka—a perfect balance. More

Cook the Book: Concord Spritzer

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 2 comments

For me, Concord grapes are one of the highlights of early fall. Their fleeting season combined with their fantastic sweet-tart flavor and curious thick-skinned texture makes them exciting to eat straight off of the bunch, but even more thrilling when shaken up into this Concord Spritzer from Laurent Tourondel's Fresh from the Market.
