Muscadine Grape Jam


2 quarts of stemmed muscadine grapes
6 cups sugar

Separate pulp from skins of muscadines. If desired, chop skins in a food blender or choppeer. Cook skins gently for 15 to 20 minutes, adding only enough water to prevent sticking (about 1/2 cup). Cook pulp without water until soft; press through a sieve or food mill to remove seeds. Combine pulp, skins and sugar. Bring slowly to boiling, stirring occasionally until sugar dissolves. Cook rapidly almost to jellying point, about 10 minutes. As mixture thickens, stir frequently to prevent sticking. Pour hot, into hot jars, leaving 1/4 inch head space. Adjust caps. Process for 15 minutes in boiling water bath. Makes about 3 pints.

This simple process can also be used to make also any other type of Grape Jam.
