BackstoryI was given some scuppernong grapes (popular and common in NC mainly) and didn't know what to do with 5 lbs of these!!! Well... the answer here is Jelly or Wine!!!
- 5 lbs scuppernong grapes (squished seeds and all)
- 3 cups sugar
- 1 package (3 oz) Strawberry jello
- Squeeze and break down grapes so the juice can escape during cooking.
- Boil over medium heat until you get a lot of juice at the bottom of the pan. Takes about 15 minutes on med-low heat.
- Remove from heat, let cool.
- Strain the grapes to get all the juice back into the pan but no skins or seeds
- Bring to a boil and then lower to med-low to simmer, add 3 cups of sugar.
- Add pkg of jello.
- Let this boil down until its thickened and is over 220 degrees.
- Add to jars and seal.
