Grape Heaven

 The grapes have turned purple and we have a bumper crop this year. I'm sure the early warm summer had something to do with that. When I was visiting my dear friend Julie a few weeks ago she shared with me her recipe for grape jam . It sounded easy and she said her's tasted real good , so I decided to give it a go.

Oh what a beautiful color!The grapes about to be boiled with a little water.



Who would have guessed that making grape jam was so rewarding to the senses.   While picking them a few landed in my mouth, it is great fun to pop the warm thick purple skin and have this outrageous burst of flavor melt in your mouth .  The color is so exciting (more on that in a future post) and the smell of cooking grapes is HEAVENLY good. And of course  when it is all done you have this sweet jam to eat!
