On Monday Justin and I drove down to DuBois Farms in Highland to pick our own Concord grapes.

In case you don't already know, I'm a HUGE fan of Concord grapes. I basically have a countdown every year until the season starts in September...and proceed to eat as many as humanly possible right through October.

We ended up getting about 12 pounds worth. I plan on taking half of them and attempting to make some sort of grape jelly. I've never done it before...but how hard can it be? Anyone have any tips?


  1. oh your favorite, awesome! the first time i ever had a concord grape was with you. i remember i tried to eat the skin :)

  2. OK, so I've seen your blog before and think I've even commented once or twice, but my husband just referred me to your blog because he thought I would like it (which I do), and he told me that you are one of the members of Bishop Allen?! I just want to let you know that I love your songs. and your blog. And I'm your newest follower.

  3. ha! a lot of people in the FLOW area had their first concord grape experience in the nowatka family kitchen. i love that.

    and technically you CAN eat the skin...but I am a fan of the -swallow the insides whole (seeds and all) and spit out the skin- method.

  4. concord grapes!!!!!!! thank you so much for bringing it to my attention they're in season. off to the farmers market I go!

    (& just to throw my two cents in, i eat the skin and spit out the seeds)

  5. Here's a jelly recipe that I stumbled across that's supposed to be really good.
