Wild Grape Jam: Freeze or Water Bath Can


 

You will need:


Canning supplies or freezer containers

Fine mesh colander

Potato masher

Medium saucepan


Ingredients:


10-12 cups of wild grapes

2 apples

5 cups of sugar

1 cup of Dutch Gel

4 tablespoons of lemon juice


1. Juice your grapes. These grapes have giant seeds for their size, and it was too much for my unit. Use caution! I tried to take the shortcut and throw the grapes into my Jack Lalane juicer, and it clogged up so bad I thought I'd lost it forever.


The best way to juice the grapes is to place them in the pan stems and all and cook them down on medium heat. I used a potato masher to smash and juice the grapes. If you're using grapes from the store, remove them from the vines.


2. Carefully strain the juice through a mesh colander and lightly press with the potato masher or ladle until you get 4 cups of liquid.


3. Place the juice into a saucepan; add lemon juice, sugar, and pectin.


4. Stir to dissolve the ingredients.


5. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15-20 minutes. Stir frequently.


6. Process for 10 minutes in a water bath canner or pour into a freezer-friendly container and freeze.
