By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Grape Juice The Old Fashion Way




I couldn't resist making grape juice concentrate from the Mustang vines on my back yard fence.

  • Just pick, stem, rinse several times, let sit in water over night.
  •  Next morning bring to a rolling boil while crushing.
  •  Strain all thru cheese cloth while cooling. 
  • Squeeze remain juice by twisting in cloth.
  •  Bring juice to boil, add about 1/2 cup lemon juice, stir. 
  • Add at least one bag of sugar while stirring. At this point taste.
  •  Add more sugar, one cup at a time until "you" are comfortable with the sweetness. 
  • Pour hot liquid into storage jars and refrigerate. It lasts for months this way but if you love grape juice, it will not last very long at all!!


When serving add a few tablespoons to a glass of water or to Ginger Ale.
Enjoy!!

The last two years, I made some from Concord grapes - no sugar added. Oh, my gosh, I couldn't believe how much better it was than the stuff you buy in the stores! That tastes so watered down now, I can't even drink it! If I did it more than once a year, I'd get that wonderful steamer thing that makes it so much easier. Lucky you having wild grapes. I wondered when I saw your other post on those if you'd have enough to make juice!

;-}

Don't count the days, make the days count!
