I love living in the country! We have wild muscadine grapes growing in the trees at my house. If only I could reach the very tip top but I got a lot for some homemade jelly! It was fun from start to finish!

Remove from heat; skim off foam using a metal spoon. Pour at once in sterilized jars, leaving 1/4 inch headspace.
  3. Wipe jar edge with a damp towel and seal with new lids according to manufacturer's instructions. Process 5 minutes in a boiling water bath. Makes about 8 half pint jars.
