GRAPE JAM (SALLYE)
Every year, my mother made us pick all the grapes and she would make jam.
This "recipe" is from her handwritten notes. I have not made this, but I remember how wonderful it tasted when I was a kid.
How to Make GRAPE JAM (SALLYE)
- 1You just wash the grapes and pick berries off stem.
Measure berries - heap(ing) cup for cup sugar.
Put on slow heat to draw juice
After it comes to a boil, boil 20 minutes
- 2Then you put through sieve or a Foley mill - the seeds stay out.
Mix all together and put in glasses.
Cover with paraffin.
It really is good and you can make it from just a couple cups of grapes at a time.
- 3My notes:
Obviously the glasses you put the jam in are mason jars with sealing lids.
Not only the seeds, but the skins of the grape should be caught by the sieve and not placed in the jam.
I would probably put one package of pectin in the mixture just to stabilize the jam.
