Concord Grape Jam Shoutout

Sorry to not post for a couple of weeks, but I had to share this.

I made Concord Grape Jam today, courtesy of Jessie at The Hungry Mouse.

(sidenote: I would never presume to tell you guys how to spend your time online, but if you are not reading this blog, you really should be.  Even if you don’t like to cook, her whimsy and enthusiasm are just infectious. )

Anyway, this jam is not for the faint of heart.  You will squeeze the grapes until your hands and furniture are covered in acid.  Whatever you are wearing will be forever stained.  There will be purple goop all over your kitchen.  And you guys know how graceful I am.  Molten jam, like sugar or deep fried foods… DEATH TRAP.

But OH MY was it worth it.  I don’t know how long this jar is going to last.  I’m going to have to make some cashew butter to go along with this.

Pretty lucky I had some homemade bread, too, wasn’t I. YUM.
