    A cheater way to make homemade grape jellly is to use bottled concord grape juice. Probably not as good as using fresh grapes but still better than what you buy and so easy. I made a batch in less than 1/2 hour.

    I picked Coronation grapes last week, but now I have a white grape variety that I need to do something with. This method would probably work as well.

    The Coronation grapes were at the farmer’s market here in Saskatoon a few weeks ago, and I snapped them up, eating them like crazy for the entire week. I hope they return so I can make some jelly. Super cute tarts!

    My family loves Concord Grape Pie. I saw they had arrived here, may have to get baking!

    The aroma, especially–simmering grapes! It’s fall in all its glory!

    Try grape pies, too–like Anna’s in my novel, Sticking Points. “Those God’s-blood pies,” Anna’s son assures her (she’s made them for a family get-together), “will be a hit.”

    I’m in the Okanagan and made Coronation Grape Jelly a couple weeks ago. It puts commercial grape jelly to shame. Unfortunately, two jars have already been emptied by the kids. I might have to make more! Years ago there was an elderly gentleman who brought pails of his Concord grapes to my door every year. $5 for a grocery bag full. He is the one who got me started. I always refrigerate the juice overnight to let the tartaric acid chrystals settle out. Those are the instructions in the old recipe I use. It didn’t explain why, but I have noticed they look like tiny shards of glass. I don’t know if they would re-dissolve when juice is reheated prior to processing or not, or even if the refrigeration before processing causes them to form.

    Wow! I wouldn’t have thought to put grape jelly with shortbread. I also thought the process to make grape jelly involved peeling grapes! I need to try this. Thanks!

    I picked some up at the Farmer’s Market last weekend. I love eating them fresh but just had to try the jelly. It worked great. One changed I made was instead of straining them, I just pureed the whole thing and continued on. It worked great. It isn’t as “clear” looking as yours, but still looks and tastes good. It saved a bunch of time and I figure we could use the added fiber.
    Thanks so much for the idea.

    In the directions you say stir together the flour, sugar and salt, but in the ingredients list you don’t mention sugar at all. So how much sugar do I add ?
