The first time I tasted a Concord grape I was smitten.  The flavor is unlike any other grape, or any other fruit, for that matter.  It’s deeper, richer, more sensual, there’s something extra special about Concord grapes.

Concord grapes were developed in Concord Massachusetts in the 1800s, and they’ve become the classic American juice and jelly grape, as well as the most common grape flavor for candy, etc.  One bite will most likely take you back to your childhood.  I picked up a seedless variety at my farmers market, but the seeded grapes are larger and even more intensely flavored and colored.  They have a beautiful characteristic ‘bloom’ on their skin that the farmer told me is from pollen.  I love these grapes and I get excited every year when they show up.

This delicious Concord grape frozen yogurt is made with a healthy one to one ratio of fruit to yogurt, with just a dribble of honey thrown in for good measure.

TIP: Because Concord grapes have relatively thick skins, I strain the fruit after I puree it.  This way I can extract the color and flavor from the skins, without leaving too much ‘texture’ in my frozen yogurt.

When you get frozen yogurt out, or buy it in stores, it’s usually full of added sugar — but when you make it yourself at home you can control all that.  This is an extremely refreshing, guilt free treat, you can even call it breakfast or lunch if you like.

I’m really pleased with this recipe, it’s unusual and distinctive, and like all of the fruit ice creams, yogurts, and popsicles I’ve done, the fresh fruit flavor is pronounced.  This one even has a slight ‘wine-y’ flavor, without the alcohol, of course.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound concord grapes, seeded or seedless, it doesn't matter
  • 1 pound plain yogurt (any kind, I used full fat Greek)
  • 2 Tbsp honey

Instructions

  1. Remove the grapes from the stems and put them in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Puree the grapes until smooth, scrape down the bowl as necessary.
  2. Push the puree through a mesh strainer, cheesecloth, or a nut milk bag. Try to get as much of the puree liquid through, leaving just the skins and any seeds behind.
  3. Blend the yogurt with the strained puree and the honey until smooth. It might help to put it back into the (rinsed) food processor to do this.
  4. For best results chill this mixture before proceeding.
  5. Pour the chilled mixture into your ice cream machine and process according to directions.
  6. Spread the frozen yogurt into a loaf pan, cover, and put in the freezer for several hours or until firm enough to scoop.

notes:

  • You can, of course, use other types of grapes for this recipe but I suggest going by taste — if the grapes aren’t super flavorful to begin with, your frozen yogurt won’t be either.

    How could I continue this recipe without an ice cream maker?

      That’s a tough question, Claudette ~ I guess I would freeze the grapes, and blend them up with very cold yogurt in a good processor or high speed blender like a Vitamix. The result would be a soft serve consistency.

    Can I use a nondairy yogurt – like almond or soy?
    Thanks
