      I can't even give this a star as mine never even cooked down. It said 2 to 3 hours and my cooked for 24 and it never cooked down. It smelled great! Really wish it would've turned out. I am going to try it again next canning season and hopefully then it will have turned out and then I can rate it with the stars. Thanks for sharing...........

      Not worth the effort - I cooked and cooked and cooked it until it boiled down. Not bad exactly, but I'd never make it again.

      My batch finished with 3.5 half pints of dark purple, thick, delicious Grape Butter. I added no honey. Cooked for 4.5 hours. The frozen plate test was so helpful. I will definitely make again.
