Wash and stem Concord grapes. In large kettle, heat grapes 8 - 10 minutes at low temperature to loosen skins (not over 145 degrees). DO NOT BOIL. Put through food mill or wide mesh strainer. Discard skins and seeds. Pour puree in glass jars, leaving 1/2 to 1" head space. Seal, label, date and freeze. Recommended storage time is 6-8 months. Note: Puree may develop gritty texture after long freezer storage. This will disappear when you heat it lightly. Georgia Peacock, Dryden
