With the end of summer comes, the dreaded grape harvest! Don't get me wrong, I love the grapes and the juice we get from the grapes... but I can have my day planned out, and think I know the way my day is going to go, when all of a sudden, there are 6 quarts of freshly picked grapes staring at me (more like screaming at me, really) thanks to my husband. Experience has taught me, you don't leave the grapes setting in a big container, outside, for very long. It doesn't take much for the sweet, ripe grapes to go bad.
So, as I have done in the past, I made the concentrated grape juice my aunt made every summer with the Concord grapes she grew. I think my aunt would approve of my Edleweiss grape juice. I bottle the juice in old, French lemonade bottles that I always save, and keep the juice in my refrigerator. It doesn't last very long.
