1. Grilled Pork Chops with Concord Grapes
Star chef Mario Batali’s fantastic savory-sweet dish will convert anyone skeptical about combining meat and fruit. He uses Concord grapes but says that pretty little Champagne grapes or even blueberries work well in the recipe, too.
2. Grape Cupcakes
Sweet and sour grape cupcakes are a huge hit with the kids! The purple frosting and cake are full of grape flavor.
3. 3-Ingredient Crock-Pot Meatballs
These crock pot grape jelly meatballs are a family favorite. They are seriously so good and the perfect appetizer for game day! They almost remind me of sweet and sour meatballs but taste better! My Grandpa has been making them for years and we always loved them growing up.
4. Purple Grape Sorbet
I know I should say this about all my recipes but… YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS!! This sorbet has the most addictive, wonderful and extraordinary flavor.
5. Concord Grape Cheesecake Bars
Fresh, sweet and tart concord grapes are made into the perfect fruit puree to top these creamy Concord Grape Cheesecake Bars.
6. Grape Salsa Recipe
It’s salsa time! Time to grab a bag of chips and gather around a big bowl of salsa. This isn’t just any salsa though, it’s Grape Salsa!!! Grapes are easy to love… they are jewel-colored, sweet like candy and the perfect size for snacking. Most table grapes have a pretty neutral flavor and make great additions in sweet and savory dishes. This Grape Salsa is a fun dish to try for savory grape eating! My family loves the sweet and spicy combo.
7. Grape Sorbet
Fresh fruit sorbets are my go-to recipes for me during the summer months. They are an excellent way to use up slightly overripe fruits, which allows you to skip the sugar. In fact, this green grape sorbet even contains a little bit of lemon juice. Partly to maintain the color since lemon is a natural preservative but most of all because I used very ripe grapes which were almost too sweet.
8. Candied Grapes
Happy Friday everyone! These Candied Grapes were such a salvation for me last week when I needed something quick and easy to do with my kiddos. You see, our “summer schedule” includes a family activity every afternoon and that particular afternoon was a crazy one. No time to head to the pool for a couple hours or even the park. I needed something done and over in 15 minutes. Yes, I could have skipped the family activity that day, but boy oh boy would I have paid for it the rest of the day….
9. White Chocolate Peanut Grape Bites
These little white chocolate peanut grape bites are perfect for having on hand as a snack and are addictingly good! I’m re-sharing this recipe from 2 years ago because I made them again and just needed to highlight them – they’d make a great after school snack recipe!
10. Upstate New York Concord Grape Pie
Nothing says fall in Upstate New York like a grape pie. This grapey Naples, NY confection is fairly new to the world of desserts, but it sure has made an impact. This annual treat is anticipated by many, and for some home cooks like myself worth the time-consuming effort it takes to put one together. I am not going to lie, it is work to put one of these bad boys together.
11. One-Ingredient Grape Granita
More importantly, is the flavor you get with that one weensy ingredient. For me, it’s like childhood in a cup. Juice made with Concord grapes was a fridge staple when I was a kid. In the summer my mom would alternate filling a cooler with that or lemonade and haul it to the beach where we’d spend the day.
12. Grape Salad
This creamy grape salad has a sweet, creamy, cool sauce. Crunchy, crisp juicy grapes. Buttery warm pecans. It’s the perfect combination of some of the world’s best foods.
13. Roasted Grape & Balsamic Crostini
Roasted Grape & Balsamic Crostini is a bold sweet and savory appetizer that I love to serve in the winter. You all know my love of balsamic runs deep, so the balsamic reduction with the grapes and creamy ricotta takes this crostini to a whole other level.
14. Caramel Apple Grapes
Caramel Apple Grapes are the perfect snack! Grapes dipped in caramel and then in nuts. A little treat that tastes like caramel apple in every bite.
15. Goat Cheese Grape Balls
Yum. So good with a glass of white wine! This simple, elegant appetizer is perfect for a last-minute New Year’s Eve get-together. Fresh goat cheese, nuts, and honey add contrasting flavors and texture in one exquisite bite.
16. Concord Grape Jam
Ever since I discovered that I can make my own Jams at home, it has become an addiction. Though at times I still do tend to buy store bought jams, the amount of satisfaction I get while whipping up my own is unmeasurable! It had been a while since I made a batch and I was itching to give something new a try. I saw these Concord Grapes in the local store last week. I remembered this one recipe I was hoping to try and am I glad I did!

27. Roasted Grape, Goat Cheese, & Honey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
You know, luscious is sort of one of those words that makes my skin crawl. It’s just so… blahhh. Like one of those words that makes you cringe to the point where you could punch a puppy in the face. So yucky.
I just had no other words to describe these grapes. I wish I could hug them.
