My neighbor wasn't going to use his grapes so I picked them and made grape juice. This is an experiment for me so we'll see how it goes.
I usually get my grapes from a friend about the end of September so these early grapes were appreciated! They made really great juice.
Grapes boiling in the pan. Lots of juice!
After cooking them, I strain the grapes to get all the juice separated from the seeds and skins. Then I heat them up again adding any sugar if needed.
Two gallons of grape juice.
ReCAP Mason jar lids take the mess out of pouring syrup and juice from your jar. They come in regular and wide mouth sizes. I just ordered some and they came a couple of days ago and they work great!
You can find them on amazon or through the reCAP website.
I grew up and have lived in Iowa until recently when I moved to a small town in Illinois to begin a new chapter in my life which includes a loving supportive husband and numerous grandchildren to spoil. I have three beautiful daughters and a Miniature Schnauzer. I'm interested in anything that supports healthy families and healthy lifestyles.
