Canning/Preserving

Ingredients

2 lb
red or green seedless grapes plucked from stems
1 1/2 c
white vinegar
1 c
white sugar
1/2 c
packed light brown sugar
2 tsp
ground coriander
1 tsp
ground cinnamon
10
whole cloves
1/4 c
crystalized ginger. or 2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 medium
jalapeƱos sliced thin

Step-By-Step

1In a sauce pan Mix together the vinegar, sugars, cinnamon, cloves and coriander and bring to a boil, boil over medium heat for 5 minutes
2Remove from heat and ginger, jalapeƱos, and grapes. Store these in the Refrigerator for at least 24 hours. Longer is better. These get better with age.
3If you want to you can put these up by canning them. Sterilize 4 pint jars or 8 half pint jars. Put the hot grapes and juice into the hot jars. Wipe the tops of your jars and add the hot lids and rings. Put into a water bath for 10 minutes.
4Now your ready to give these as gift or just keep them for yourself. Your friends will remember your unique gift. You might put a tag in the jar with suggestion on how to use them. I put them in chicken salad, tossed salad and serve on the side as an appetizer.
5Tip!!! Sams club has the extra large grapes which makes a pretty presentation.
