Concord Grapes: The Harbinger of Fall

Concord grapes are my absolute favorite grape! They have a distinct taste that is truly their own and they also hold precious memories of time spent with my grandparents. In late August, I get the call from my Grandma saying that the vines are loaded down, the grapes are ready and it’s time to pick. I get filled with the same level of excitement every year because I can’t wait to taste the fresh harvest, have lots of good laughs and get the first spoonful of her prized grape jelly!
