Grape Jelly

I made grape jelly today from our own grapes, picked and frozen in August. This is not a mild reddish colour, it's truly grape - dark and rich! It's delicious!

I have enough juice to make about 5 more jars but I ran out of pectin. I will have to finish it after a trip to the store.
All I have left to work with now are the apples. Next up are apple jelly, apple sauce and apple butter!

Grape jelly is my absolute favorite! And I love that you used your frozen grapes. Isn't that freezer handy? And isn't it a shame pectin has gotten so expensive? I'm thinking about trying pomona. It's priced high too but I think you can get several batches out of one box (?)

I know I haven't visited in forever, so please forgive this shameless self-promoting, but I'm so excited I have to tell the whole world. I just published my homesteading book! Please do drop by my blog if you get a chance, to help me celebrate. :)
