Recipe:

 2 1/2 lb of Grapes makes 1 Quart

Instructions:

I used concord grapes, but you can use any kind.

Pick all the grapes off the stems and wash them.

 Mash the grapes with a potato masher this will release the juices, pulp and at the same time removing the skins.

 Put in to a sauce pan and add water about 1/2 inch above the grapes.

 Bring to a boil then turn down to med-low for 10 – 15 minutes.

Taste the juice and depending on how sweet the grapes are you can add sugar or maple syrup while the grapes are cooking.

 Pour through cheese cloth in a mesh colander and press the grapes in the cheese cloth to get all the juices out.

Pour into a jar and refrigerate.
