A beautiful purple sorbet, that was adapted from a Martha Stewart Living recipe and is wonderful! Try it!
2/3 cup agave
1 1/2 pounds Concord grapes (1 quart container)
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
Prepare an ice bath; set aside.
Combine grapes and the remaining water in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the grapes start releasing liquid, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat, and simmer until juices are dark purple and grapes begin to break apart, about 3 minutes.
Pass mixture through a food mill and then through a fine sieve into a large bowl set in the ice bath; stir frequently until completely cool. Stir in the agave and lemon juice.
Transfer mixture to an ice-cream maker, and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Store the sorbet in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to serve, up to 2 weeks.

How We Eat
This whole co-op developed into what it is now out of a need in our own community – a need for the kinds of natural foods our family was trying to eat. So perhaps knowing the kinds of things we eat as a family will give you a clue about what you can expect to find in our co-op. (However, at the time of this update in February of 2013, we do not have the ability to deliver highly perishable or frozen items such as meat and dairy products, so these items are not yet available. We do have a local food page where you can find a list of farms that do offer these things.)
Since 2002, we have been following a Weston A. Price diet of real, whole, traditional foods: soaked and sour-leavened grains, plenty of good quality butter and ghee, local milk, cod liver oil, organic and minimally sprayed fruits and vegetables, pastured eggs and meats, natural sweeteners, and homemade fermented foods and bone stocks. As a mom, I couldn’t be happier with the results. Our children’s teeth are 90% straighter than Tim’s or mine, their palates are wider, and we have had only one cavity among the five of them – and that, in a baby tooth. All of us are healthy, and we are not plagued with food allergies and sensitivities. I’m thankful to have learned about traditional foods when our kids were still young!
