Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Course Drinks
Servings 1 gallon(ish)

Equipment

  • 2 Pots
  • Strainer
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Stove/cooking burner
  • tablespoon measuring spoon
  • Jug for storing juice
  • Masher

Ingredients
  

  • 5 lbs fresh grapes
  • Water For cleaning and for cooking
  • 2 tbsp Grape Jelly or Jam Optional
  • 4-6 tbsp Sugar or sugar substitute Optional

Instructions
 

  • Clean fresh grapes by submerging in cold water or running cold water over them.
  • Take grapes of the stems, massage them with your fingers over the pot starting at the top of the stem and working down.
  • Cover cleaned grapes with fresh hot water, just enough to submerge them.
  • Simmer grapes over medium-high heat on a stove or burner until the skins start to split.
  • If you want your juice to be sweetened, add either 2 tbsp of grape jelly or jam; or add 4-6 tbsp of sugar or sugar substitute. ** This step we recomend sampling your juice as is before doing, depnding on the ripness and type of grpae they may be sweet to begin with, so sweeten to taste.
  • Remove from heat and mash the grapes with your masher until well mashed up and then return to heat. BE CAREFUL IT IS HOT!!!!
  • Simmer for another 5 mins and remove from heat.
  • Using a strainer or cheesecloth, strain your grape mash and juice into the second pot. IT WILL BE HOT!!! BE CAREFUL! Also you may have to stir the mash as it is straining to help the juice flow out.
  • When juice has cooled off enough your jug, or container can hold it poor the juice into it and store in fridge while you enjoy it.

Notes

** The grape jelly/jam and the sugar/substitute are optional and do not need to be used if you do not want to sweeten your juice; also they can be added in after you strained your mash/juice and the juice is still hot enough to dissolve/incorporate it.
 
*** You can use an immersion blender instead of a masher if you have one.
