Canning trial - Easy Grape Juice
My kids weren't eating them so I decided to try my hand at making some easy grape juice that I had heard about on several canning sites.
Here is what I did:
I put 1/2 cup of washed grapes into each pint jar. Then I took three cups of water and stirred 3/4 cup of sugar until dissolved. I poured that equally into the three jars and added plain water up to the neck of the jar. I wiped the rim of the jar and added my lids. Then I put them in my water bath canner and brought it up to a boil and continued to boil them for 20 minutes.
Now the hardest part is to wait a few weeks before opening and trying the "juice". And if we like it, I will be doing this every year when my grapes are ready.
