New York Harvest Report: Bad News/Good News

     It looks like the grape crop in New York state will be down by about 22 percent this year.

     That’s the bad news.

     The good news: Most of that decline can be attributed to harvest conditions in the Chautauqua/Lake Erie area, where Concord grapes dominate the vineyards.

     Yes, some vintners use Concords to make wine, but a vast majority of the Concord crush is earmarked for juice and jelly.

     So, the real bad news may be for fans of PB&J sandwiches.
