Balsamic Concord Roasted Grapes Recipe

Oh, Balsamic Concord Roasted Grapes Recipe, where have you been all my life?

I always thought grapes were just fine as is until you came along. Blistered in a hot oven with sweet-tart vinegar and herbs, you’re like homemade jam without all the fussing and waiting.

While the Concord grape season is too short for our liking, we’ve realized our local Asian market has a similar Kyoho variety, which will carry you well into the Fall, which means you’ll be all over our holiday table. 

Go stock up on all your cooking essentials then head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
