There's still some cucumbers left and way too many green tomatoes,
now there's apples and grapes to deal with...
We picked a bowl of apples and one of grapes.
The grapes were mashed into a pot w/ some water,
brought to a boil and simmered on a low fire for 15 mins or so.
The apples were quartered into a big pot, just barely
covered w/ water and simmered for a longer time.
Both mashes were left to drain overnight in a cloth lined strainer.
My favorite part was testing the juice for pectin.
Pour 1tsp of the strained juice into a bit of rubbing
alcohol, and if theres enough pectin it will gel up...
So you can pick it up with a fork...
How cool is that?
