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.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Vitis Mustangensis

Nope, it's not a sickness, it's grapes. Wild grapes, that is.
Mustang grapes are all over my fence this year. The birds have been munching on them for a couple of weeks so my Cowboy suggested that I really needed to get out there before all was lost.
Among the grapes are lizards, spiders, a snake or two & my favorite.....wasps!!
I dawned my hunting gear (minus the shotgun), a pair of shears and some wasp spray to harvest the grapes.

Here's how much I've cut off so far. I'll be canning jelly &  my Cowboy wants to dabble in some wine.....we'll have to see if that pans out.
Now I've picked all the stems off & will pour sugar over top & allow to sit over night.  I'll add a little water and Pectin and pretty soon we'll have grape jelly!!
There are tons of wonderful jelly recipes on the Internet to try out, this is just one of many.

Hmm....when you said "let it sit overnight" I started to think "fermentation" and wine-making. I wonder if that will give it a little extra zip.

Oh I love fresh grapes and jelly making. We don't have vines here. But their is a winery nearby that sells theirs reasonably that we go to and pick they have the big muscadine grapes.

Yum Yum Rhonda. I love grape jelly right after blueberry jam. Yum. Love your hunter outfit. Enjoy the grapes.
