I made home made grape juice.....a lot of work for not much juice ;) The jury is still out as to if I would make home made juice again or make jelly again......I'll let you know the first time we pop it open LOL!!!!
Here is the recipe for that:
3 cups sugar
To prepare juice: Select 1/4th firm-ripe and 3/4th fully-ripe grapes. Wash and stem grapes. Crush grapes. Add water; cover; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes. Strain juice through damp jelly bag or several layers cheesecloth. To prevent formation of tartrate crystals in jelly, let juice stand in a cool place 12 to 24 hours; strain again to remove crystals.
To prepare jelly: Put grape juice in a large saucepot. Add sugar, stirring until dissolved. Boil over high heat, stirring constantly, to 8 degrees F above the boiling point of water or until jelly mixture sheets from a spoon. Remove from heat. Skim foam if necessary. ladle hot jelly into hot, sterilized jars,leaving 1/4th inch headspace. Adjust two-piece caps. Process 5 minutes in a boiling water canner.
Yield: about 4 half-pints.
Mary also makes grape jelly :) Here is her video for that! No home made juice ;) I just choose to make home made juice and to not use the pectin.......don't know why it's just a "thing" with me I guess!!!
