It’s almost Concord Grape season in our area. I had one quart and one pint of homemade grape juice that we canned in 2015 left in the cellar. Last night was the perfect night to process it into some beautiful, sweet grape jelly.
You can see how we process our jelly on an older post here: Concord Grape Jelly
This is the best grape juice you can have. All natural, naturally sweet and full of the health benefits of purple grapes.
To make our grape juice I use 12 cups of grape juice extracted (see how to do that here.)
12 cups pure grape juice
3 cups water
1 cup sugar (adjust to your taste if your grapes are sweet or tart) There is no exact measurement as each batch of juice is different depending on the grapes. I don’t even use sugar half of the time as the grapes are so sweet themselves.
Bring all to a boil and place into prepared jars. Process for 10 minutes and store in dark cool place after cooled for up to 10 months (it won’t last that long 🙂 )
Here’s a little peek at what will be happening in my country kitchen tomorrow 🙂
