grape juice.

23 October 2011

I've already shared the harvest going on at our home. Here is one way we're using some of the grapes we've been busy picking. As we've been making this in small batches, it's not an exact recipe. Depending on the amount of grapes you use and their sweetness, you'll need to adjust the amount of sugar added to suit your own taste.

Grape Juice:
Fill a large, heavy bottom pot with grapes that have been removed from their stems. Then, fill the pot about 1/4 full of water. Bring to a hard boil, then cover and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and cool. Using a fine mesh strainer on top of a large mixing bowl, pour the entire pot's contents through the strainer. Push the grapes down so that the juice is extracted and the skins and seeds are left behind. Once complete, discard the skins and seeds. Then, strain the liquid once again and return it to your heavy bottom pot. Place over low heat. If your grapes are not sweet enough for your liking, add sugar to taste and allow it to dissolve. Remove from heat, chill and then serve.
