I made ice pops with the concord grapes from the farmers' market. They were delicious! So grapey. I used the recipe from the People's Pops cookbook. Basically purée th whole grapes with a food processor, pour through a mesh strainer to remove the seeds and skins from the juice, then add simple syrup and lemon juice to taste. Freeze in Popsicle molds.

We always have lots of Concord grapes in ouir garden in the fall. I make several batches of Jennifer Perillo's Concord Grape muffins. They are delicious and freeze well. http://www.injennieskitchen... Merrill's Concord Grape and Lemon Soda is also very good. http://www.food52.com/recipes...

Make these...Trust me...they're soooo good. Meat balls with fried grapes..yogurt sauce mint..

Yeah the Concord might be a little departure with the seeds. But still worth it.

If you have a TON, a steamer/juicer, and the ability to can, you can make grape juice and grape jelly. I just made both, and the jelly is like crack.

Here is a basic, and very rough, recipe.

Grape juice:

Concord grapes

Fill bottom of steamer/juicer with some water. Fill steamer basket with grapes. Pour a little sugar on top (I'd say about 1/2 cup) so that grapes will pop and juices will flow. Place steamer/juicer on stove and set stove to high. Allow water to boil and grapes to juice. Fill jars with juice, according to whatever canning method you prefer and to however your juicer/steamer works.

Grape Jelly

3 cups grape juice
3 cups sugar
1 packet certo liquid pectin.

Place grape juice and sugar in LARGE, TALL stock pot (this stuff boils very high, so I would try an 8 qt pot if you have one). Bring to boil. Boil for about 3 minutes. Add pectin, and bring to boil again. Fill jars according to your preferred canning method. Let cool. Eat/Inhale. If too runny, place sealed cans in boiling hot water path for 5 minutes.

1 I agree with Maedl and Dona that concord grape focaccia is delicious. Melissa Clark's is great, and I made a honey wheat and rosemary concord grape focaccia just this week:
