Concord grape

My favorite sort of grape, unavailable in Europe and, for some reason, no decent one was to be found here in California last season. But this is a happier year, the Good Earth is bursting with bags of the best, tart-skinned, sweet inside, and with that wonderful deep purple layer between the two. Purple being Felix's favorite color I carefully removed the skin on a nice big one the other day, to show him, and to convince him to try this new treat. He did so and liked the taste just fine, but what he really enjoys is the sight of the stripped grape, and he now repeatedly asks me to prepare them for him in this way. Yes, that's right, on top of everything else I am now expected actually to peel him a grape.
