No sour grapes here.


Mmm. Nothing but purple sweetness! The kids love helping me pick, clean and measure out the grapes for this super simple grape juice. And in a couple weeks, they'll love to help taste it too! This afternoon we put up 18 quarts of the yummy stuff.


The recipe couldn't be any easier...
Measure out 1 cup clean grapes, 1/2 cup sugar, and boiling water to fill clean hot jars. Place lids, and process in boiling water for 20 minutes. Check to be sure they've sealed. After 2 weeks of shelf time (to allow the grape flavor to permeate the water) it's ready to enjoy. Just pour the juice through a colander into a pitcher to seperate out the grapes, and enjoy it's sweet goodness!

Wow!!! That sounds so much easier than the way my mom taught me to do it...I'm going to have to try this next year.
