DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and stem grapes.
  • Place in a large stainless or enamel pot.
  • With a potato masher or wooden spoon mash grapes.
  • Bring to a gentle boil and reduce heat to an "active" simmer.
  • Simmer 10 minutes-you want to be able to crush the center of grapes easily with a wooden spoon-no bouncing back.
  • Run the grapes through a food mill to remove seeds.
  • Return pulp to the saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil and stir in honey.
  • Stir often to prevent scorching.
  • After about 10 minutes you should not be able to stir down the boil.
  • Test for gel point.
  • Jelly/puree will begin to darken and thicken up.
  • This should take around 15 to 20 minutes from the boil point, but alot depends on the amount of juice your grapes are holding-you could go up to 35 minutes.
  • Ladle into clean hot sterile jars leaving 1/4 inch head space, and seal.
  • Process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
