|This luscious Ginger-Grape Jam is made with my own organic seedless green grapes! *Recipe for cakes below|
It is a dark rainy night in the Comox Valley. This is the kind of night that Grandmothers use to make jam.
We have a grape arbour that produces sweet seedless green grapes. This was a long hot, dry summer-- apparently the kind of growing season that these grapes enjoy!
Originally the grapes were used for wine-making. But we call them "Table Grapes". We freeze each little gem and use them in smoothies for most of the winter. And we make Jam. Please note: This jam was made with ORGANIC seedless green grapes during ORGANIC WEEK!
So, let's get right to the recipe:
Pick the grapes (at least 1 Kg/2 pounds) and soak 20 min. in basin of water with 1/4 C. Vinegar mixed in.
- 2 pounds/ 1 Kg Fresh, Ripe Grapes.
- 1/4 Cup / 60 g Sugar or other Sweetener
- 1/2 Lime, Juiced, Fresh lemon is a good substitute
- 1 thumb-size fresh Ginger, grated
