Grapes anyone? Here is my reduced sugar grape jam/jelly recipe
Ingredients: Red grapes (seedles1 pound), sugar (2 cups), lemon juice (1 tbsp)
We will be canning the jam/jelly so we need to sterilize the jars (see post on canning tomatoes for sterilization process).
Wash the grapes, put them in a pot squeezing them with your hands as you go. Add a little water and start cooking at medium heat
Put it back in the pot and cook for a little longer, until smooth like in the picture. Then add the sugar and keep stirring until it bubbles and a thermometer has 212 C. Another way to see if it is ready is to put a little of the jam on a ceramic plate and place in the freezer for a few second and see if stays in shape. If it is too runny you need to keep cooking and stirring
