Grape Juice

Today I canned grape juice with my mom. It was easy as pie. Wait!? Pies are hard to make... where in the world did that saying come from? ha.

We canned 56 quarts from the little vineyard in our front yard. It was the first year they really produced well. Josh trimmed them two years ago and that must have been just what they needed. Thanks honey.

We just used stevia to sweeten the juice. It makes you feel so much better than dumping in all that sugar.

Here are some photos to document the process.






















Grape Juice

 grapes
stevia
water

Pick grapes from stems. If they are in nice bunches you can place the 
whole bunch in the jar. Mine were organic so they weren't perfect. 
Wash only if needed.
Place 2 cups of grapes in a quart jar along with a scant 1/4 tsp. stevia.
Fill jar with water up to 1/2 inch below first rim, 
this is so they wont run over after they are processed.
Place on lids and rings. Hot water bath for 15 minutes.

Strain grapes out before serving. Add enough water for your taste.
We usually just add ice. 
Gingerale or club soda added makes a nice party drink.

Enjoy,
Hope

  3. Looks good! I have that day arriving shortly (my dear mother is planning to help ;-) What kind of stevia do you like? My jar is almost all and the company (KAL) changed the formula to include maltodextrin; I need to order more, but I'm thinking I should change brands... I loved that from Charity but don't know where to find more.
