His Patience and Finesse Pay Off

Holy Concord Grapes, BatMAN... after tapping my impatient foot waiting ( ahem, we're talkin' years here) while the MAN perfected his pruning and vine training techniques, we are officially overrun with the fragrant globes! What to do with them now that I have 'em, is the question of the day. I beg you not to answer with jelly...there's got to be something else besides jelly....off to Google concord grape recipes.**Alas, a veritable sea of grape jelly and jam recipes flood the internet. However, a ray of epicurean hope was discovered in this NY Times article!! Can you say concord grape chutney with nuts, lemongrass and ginger? I'm there. Now, I just need to buy some time to experiment. Not sure where I can find that costly ingredient...
