On Monday I had an opportunity to go pick grapes from a nearby farm. I picked 51 pounds of concord grapes. I probably would have picked more, but the bees were awful and I'm terrified of bees. My three youngest kids came with me.
I took my camera, but forgot to get pictures.
Now I've got 51 pounds of grapes to deal with. Yesterday I made 18 half-pint jars of grape jelly. That was only using less than 1/4 of the grapes.
I also picked 16 pounds of apples. Yesterday I made the most wonderful apple butter! I made it in the crock pot, so other than peeling apples, the crock pot did the rest of the work for me. I don't have one of those fancy apple peeler machines, so I peel the apples by hand. That takes quite a bit of time. I also made an apple pie. Mmmm good!
I've got to finish the grapes before I can do more with the apples. The grapes will go bad faster.
I'll post some pictures of the grapes and my finished products later.
Off to make jelly now!
