Fresh Concord Grape Spread

3262

Concord grape spread made from fresh concord grapes right off the vine.

16
2 cups washed grapes
3 cups water
1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
Place all ingredients in medium-large stockpot Place 2 spoons in the freezer to chill. Bring pot to a boil & keep boiling about 40-45 minutes - keep stirring through this time. You will see the grapes break down, the seeds floating around & the mixture thickening up. Once you reach the 40 minute mark take one of your spoons from the freezer & dip it in your spread- return to the freezer for 3 minutes. Continue to boil mixture while you are waiting for the spoon. Remove spoon & tip to see if it runs- if it doesn't- your spread is ready. If it does run- continue to boil additional 5 minutes at a time & repeat the spoon test until it doesn't run. Once it's ready - remove from heat. Place a mesh colander over a small bowl & pour your spread in carefully. Press through with your spatula to get as much of the spread into your bowl while straining those seeds & remaining skins out. Once you have strained completely- toss the seeds & skins & transfer your spread to your jars. Allow to cool overnight before using. Store in refrigerator or in freezer for long term.

Skip store-bought cans, because you can't beat the sweet, savory and smoky taste of homemade baked beans with bacon and molasses. The old-fashioned beans cook slowly in the oven for hours, developing a rich, thick sauce. Baked beans from scratch are the perfect side dish for your next cookout or potluck, and a simple lunch or dinner entrée when paired with cornbread or Boston brown bread!
