Wild n Sweet!

YOU cant kill these ...as kids we used to swing through the trees like Tarzan on the vines! But since my swinging days are over now I use these wild grapes for Jelly! We have Fox, Muscadines, & Scuponong grapes growing wild here... you can't train them or domesticate them don't even bother trying--these grow where they want to grow!!

So we picked a bowl full and made up 13 jars of jelly, we ate the odd one right away..lol
just in case**

Wild Grapes


The Fox are the smaller darker grape, and its sweeter too.


Wash the Grapes
Christmas is coming so....Im sure everyone on my list is getting a jar!

Grape Jelly

We also mixed up some apple juice with the 2 cups of jelly pulp we had left over and made some low sugar apple/grape Jelly
I made up this image for a label to put on the jars!!
