Concord Grape Juice (Whole-Grape Method)

Ripe Concord grapes
Boiling water

Wash and stem the grapes. Put 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups in each clean quart-sized jar. Add 1/2 cup sugar to each and pour in boiling water to come within 1/2 inch of rims. Cover the jars with two piece lids and fasten the screw bands.

Place the jars on a rack in a deep kettle half full of boiling water. Add boiling water to cover the lids by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, cover, and boil hard (process) for 10 minutes. Remove the jars from the boiling water bath and let them cool.

Store in a dark place for at least 2 weeks. Strain off the juice and serve chilled.
