"Candy" Grapes

Perhaps its because I only get them once a year. 
Perhaps its the satisfaction of picking them myself. 
Perhaps its that they are so freshly picked without any substantial transport time.
Perhaps they really are the best tasting variety of grape on earth. 
Whatever the reason I think concord grapes are like candy.  I can hardly get any into the juicer because they all--somehow--try to end up in my mouth.  Matt is busy pulling them off the stem.  I am busy stuffing them into my mouth.  Purple-blue fingers, and lips, and chin, and teeth, and tongue.  Seriously.  Like candy.

But we did, in fact, manage to get some into the juicer.   We had some with breakfast this morning and rows of quart jars on the shelves downstairs for drinking and making jelly with.  Hooray.
Like that apron over the coat look!?!  That will be necessary when making juice in the yard in October.
But I still like them best whole.  You know, with their being candy grapes and all.  Now I have to wait until next year once more.

  1. I have never had Concord grapes, but I love the juice. After asking what Matt had on his head, I was not going to ask about your garb. I love scuppernong juice from scuppernongs from my backyard.

    1. I've never had the chance to try scuppernongs. In fact, I just learned of them not too long ago from you!

      Concord grapes whole are the best and they make the best tasting juice, too. Yummy, yummy, yum!
