Grape Juice

Wash, stem, crush and measure fresh, firm ripe grapes. Add 1 cup water to each gallon, crushed grapes. Heat 10 minutes at 190 degrees. (Boiling develops a poor flavor.)

Strain through cotton flannel, jelly bag or 4 layers of cheesecloth. For greater yeild of juice, twist the two ends of the bag in opposite directions until most of the juice is extracted.)

Let stand 24 hours in refrigerator. Strain again. Add 1 to 2 cups sugar to each gallon juice. Reheat to 190 degrees. Pour, hot, into hot jars, leaving 1/4-inch head space. Adjust caps. Process pints and quarts, 15 minutes, in boiling water bath.
