Re: Americano grapes
Ripe, fresh concord grapes are a thing of beauty. That spicy sweet taste... Ah, memories of home.
The Americanos in our Coop last week were pretty awful specimens, tasting at best like a poor subsitute. And yes, tough.
They shouldn't be.
When you find a good bunch, though....
I make a jelly (this is the traditional J in PB&J), once in a while a juice, more often a syrup. The syrup is wonderful as a base for a game sauce or a sorbet.
