Craving for Concord Grapes

I blame it on hormone change again LOL. I may be laughing but, it is true.PMS to perimenopause perhaps (oh no) and into menopause ( got a long way to go I hope ) , hormonal ups and downs can wreak havoc on a woman's life. Once or twice a month, I have migraines due to stress and fatigue but wait, how can it be? I stay at home, got no kids that take my time ... house is not that big to maintain... I seldom blog, as you can see updates are only few ... what's there to be stressed about? I leave my questions to my family doctor. "Amy, there are other reasons", you probably said this right now (wink) and you are right.

Well for now, my favorite fruit is Concord grapes. It satisfies my cravings and my migraine would disappear. Weird huh or it might not be. I only see the concord grapes in the produce section when fall season comes. It might be a seasonal fruit. See the picture above? It is different from the usual grapes that we have in the market all year round.

This type of grapes is used as table grapes, wine grapes and juice grapes. It is also used to make grape jelly, grape juice, grape-flavored soft drinks, and candy. Interesting! The Concord grape is dark blue (see the photos).  It is covered with a lighter-coloured "bloom" that can be easily rubbed off.

This type of grapes is called slip-skin variety because the skin is easily separated from the fruit. Most grapes that we buy in the produce section, we eat the whole fruit right? But with concord grapes, I only eat the juicy, sweet and aromatic fruit ... the skin, nope! I think I will head to the grocery's produce section now ... I am craving for concord grapes at this time. See yah! Thanks for stopping by.
