Earlier in the season, I had a hard time finding canning jars that didn't break the bank. The only place I could find canning jars sold them for $1.99 a jar. Ouch. So when we went up to the family farm, my father-in-law told us that we could buy jars from the Amish for a great price. They buy in bulk so they get amazing prices. We were able to buy 4 cases of canning jars from them at $6.50 a case. Much better than $1.99 / jar!
concord grapes in jars at the farm. I emptied out the grapes onto a strainer and smooshed the grapes with a spoon. Since we had already can processed these grapes in a hot water bath already, the juice flowed pretty easily.
to process the 4 bushels of grapes at the family farm, this jelly made it all worth it! I can't wait until our grapevines hurry up and grow! We have one concord grapevine in the backyard. The other 3 grapevines are Reliance Pink, Seedless Glenora, and Cayuga. Does anyone know, can you make jelly out of any type of grapes or does it have to be Concord?
