Home Canning is fun, easy & economical. Make Concord Grape Jam with Vanilla when fresh grapes are in season. This is an easy to follow recipe with lots of how-to photos.
We got a whole bunch of beautiful Concord Grapes with our farm share last week. Concord Grapes come into season in the early fall and you can often find them in a well stocked grocery store or local farmer’s market.
Personally, although Concord Grapes have a really wonderful flavor that is often described as “musky”, I think the thick skins make them a little less pleasant to eat than many other table grapes.
But that specific flavor and those thick skins make Concords the perfect grapes for preserving. As I say every time I post a home canning recipe, it’s really easy and not at all scary to make your own jams, jellies and preserves. You just need the proper jars, a big pot and a bounty of fresh produce.

I’m not a big fan of commercially made grape jelly. But this homemade Concord Grape Jam with Vanilla is what store bought grape jelly wants to be when it grows up.
