Top Review by Treenickel

This sounded so unusual I had to try it. It never did thicken up so after 1 hour I added a pouch of liquid pectin to it. Now it is of a consistency of about pancake syrup. This is going to make an excellent glaze for meats. I didn't have any 4 oz jars so I made it into half pints and ended up with 6-1/2 jars. I water bathed them in my canner to seal them up nice. My grapes were already juiced when I found this recipe so I substituted 4 pints of juice and I think it came out about right. Just as a matter of personal preference I added about 1T of dry mustard after tasting it. Although I thought it was perfectly fine without the mustard also.Smells heavenly while cooking.
