The first sign of Concord grapes coincides with the arrival of fall, the season of so many delicious preserves, cakes, and pies. These grapes are nothing like the seedless green and red varieties you find at grocery stores – Concord grapes actually taste like grapes. Their thick, tart skin slips right off their fragrant, sweet interior flesh. While seeding them is somewhat of a tedious task, the flavor they impart inside of sweet and savory dishes makes it well worth the effort.
