Repeat after me: "Peeling grapes is not hard." Actually, it's quite easy, and oh-so-deliciously worth it. A simple jam of Concord grapes, a bit of sugar and not much else, but the skins deliver a wallop of flavor. Must be tasted to be believed.
A jam so black when you peer into its dense glossy richness you have to hang on so's not to fall through into an alternative jammy universe. Powerful stuff!
