Grapes are one of those fruits we’ve gotten used to seeing in grocery stores all year long. But those bland, lifeless bunches bear almost no resemblance to the grapes you’ll find in farmers’ markets now. Like any fruit at its prime, fall grapes are as good as they come: plump, fragrant, juicy— literally bursting with flavor. Now is also when you’ll come across the widest variety of grapes, from the familiar Red Flame to big, round Concords and petite, delicately sweet Champagne grapes.

Learn about all the different varieties of grapes, plus how to buy, store, and prep them.

Brand new here. Looks like a good site for some different types of recipes.
I have a question...We have a nice-sized grape vine in the back yard and there are so many this year that they are starting to become overripe. No...I don't want to make wine (there's not that many left anyhow). Still, what kind of recipes are there using grapes? I don't see too many of them around.
Thank you for any help you can give me.
