Welcome to our Zone 3 Vineyard where we are world renowned for our
famous wines and jellies!
Come tour all THREE of our grapevines!
This looks all good and dandy but I have to confess that this contraption, which works great for tomatoes, sucks for grapes. It clogged up so badly that I ended up throwing the whole works in a pot,
shoved my foot in there and stomped
I got out my stick mixer and just blended it all up, hung the mess in cheesecloth and strained.
If you like heat, you might like this jelly.
I followed the pectin grape jelly recipe from the box, except I wrapped some chili's from my garden in cheesecloth
and boiled the bejeebers out of it.
When that wasn't hot enough, I put in a pinch of chili powder...
and by a pinch, I mean a teaspoon.
HOT CHILI GRAPE JELLY
4 cups grape juice
4 1/2 cups sugar
1 box pectin
1 tsp citric acid
1 tsp chili powder
Boil pectin and grape juice for 1 minute
add sugar, chili powder and citric acid and boil hard for one more minute.
Pour into sterilized jars.
I processed them in a water bath for ten minutes
And if the jelly wasn't hot enough, I foolishly ate a pepper......YIKES!
Feel sorry for me tomorrow.
