Pie of the Week: Pear and Concord Grape Pie

Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

Pears and grapes make an amazing team. You get all of the subtle, mellow flavor of pears, punctuated by bursts of tart, electric grape flavor. Make this pie now, while Concord grapes are still in season. More

This rich, punchy sorbet is just as full of grape flavor as any glass of wine. More

Cookie Monster: Concord Grape-Thyme Bars

Cookie Monster Carrie Vasios Mullins 1 comment

Can you encapsulate the feeling of "fall-in-a-vineyard" in a dessert? I tried and IMHO succeeded with these bar cookies. The trick? Pairing a rich homemade Concord grape and thyme jam with a sweet butter cookie base. More

Bake the Book: Sweet Rosemary and Grape Focaccia

Caroline Russock Post a comment

With wrinkly-sweet grapes sandwiched between two layers of olive-oily rosemary and anise-flecked focaccia we could eat slices of this Sweet Rosemary and Grape Focaccia from Francine Segan's Dolci all day long. More

Let Them Eat: Concord Grape Cake

Let Them Eat... MarĂ­a 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

Preserved: Concord Grape Jam

Preserved 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

Pie of the Week: Mini Grape Galettes

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

These pickled grapes have a tangy, sweet-and-sour flavor and are seasoned with cinnamon, fennel, mustard, black pepper, and citrus. They would make a delicious addition to any cheese plate and an inspired hors d'oeuvre at your next beer tasting. More
