Earlier this week I shared how to make a canned concord grape pie filling and how to make a pie from the canned pie filling. Now, I'm sharing this delicious concord grape sorbet. We have a local place that sells 4 and 8 quart baskets of concord grapes and I have to go back a few times to buy more 8 quart baskets of them.
I've recently discovered that I really, really enjoy sorbets. I even enjoy it so much more than ice cream. This would be ridiculously good with a swirl of peanut butter in it.
One of my most favorite things about this sorbet is the color. It's so vibrant. It almost looks like beet juice. It's not, don't worry. That would be a horrible combination!
If you're looking for some advice about feeding this to your toddler, I have some tips for you. Strip them down to their skibbies and throw them in a high chair no wheres near carpet. I promise that they will love this concord grape sorbet and it will probably be all over the place.
So, what needs to happen is that you have to crank up the heat and sit down with a big bowl of concord grape sorbet. I will not judge you.
Concord Grape Sorbet
- 4 cups concord grapes washed and removed from vine
- ½ cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Place the grapes, water, and sugar in a medium saucepan. Turn heat on medium and heat for 12-15 minutes.
- Strain the mixture with a fine mesh strainer to rid it of seeds and skins.
- Place the mixture into the fridge until completely cooled or overnight.
- Place in the ice cream maker once completely cooled for the recommended time for your ice cream maker. Mine recommends no longer than 20 minutes.
- Place in a freezer safe container and freeze for 2 hours or until very firm. Scoop and serve!
