Summer Fest: Grape-Filled Desserts

The most common grapes you’ll find at the market right now are Concord grapes, which are great for juice, jelly or jam. But grapes also come in a variety of types, including seedless grapes, table grapes and wine grapes. Choose clusters of brightly colored and plump grapes, and store them in the refrigerator for about a week. While they’re great on their own for dessert try featuring them in these more-elaborate sweet recipes.
