They’re Grape!

Finding a new recipe that immediately becomes a family favorite is one of my favorite things.  When something turns out so well that everyone loves it, I don’t mind whatever it takes to make it.  Good thing, because this particular recipe using Concord grapes is not the quickest or easiest to prepare, but one that I’ve already made three times since I discovered that Concords could be used for more than just jam.

This might sound fairly easy, but seeding Concord grapes is not the easiest.  A sharp knife and patience is definitely a help, but I found that freezing them and then splitting and seeding also makes it much easier.

Using an old favorite to make a new favorite is a great way to start my day, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
