It’s going grape

The grape plant went wild this summer…it dragged down our garden fence with the sheer weight of its fruits and gave me hours and hours of work processing the harvest (thankfully the kids did the harvesting) into jelly. I’m ready for a break from summer now, though we’ll be processing veggies well into October.

Grapes…

Grape pomace (though my family prefers the other P word because scatological humor is ageless)…

And the juice

makes jelly…

Jewel-toned deliciousness…

Apparently some people never eat jelly…and I’m wondering what the heck do they put on their toast? Know what I put on my homemade artisan bread? Butter + Vegemite, and then peanut butter + homemade jelly and/or homemade marmalade.
