Concord grape sorbet is deep, gorgeous purple and bright and incredibly fresh tasting. I make a lot of sorbets and have been making them for years and this one is a favorite. It is probably the best tasting sorbet you will have. Grab the fresh Concord grapes when they come into season in thes fall and serve this aromatic and rich sorbet at your holiday meals.

The smell of fresh Concord grapes is as intoxicating as an orchard of fragrant blossoms. The flavor of Concord grapes is crisp and clean with a balanced sweetness. Fresh Concord grapes are a world apart from their canned, jellied, and jarred counterparts. The processed grapes are cloyingly sweet with none of the brightness of the fresh ones. This Concord Grape Glaze is an aigre doux (sweet and sour) sauce with aromatic attitude. Sweet, sour, and so fragrant, it is sure to become a family favorite. The sauce nicely complements the flavor of turkey and is amazing on duck and chicken. It can be made up to 2 days before serving.

My husband is also a chef and specializes in gorgeous French pastries. But, when we entertain at home, and we entertain often, we prefer simple, big flavored, non-fussy desserts. This galette is a great make-ahead dessert that allows the cook to enjoy time with friends and family.
