Introduction

A mix of ready-to-eat and unripe Concord grapes from our backyard vineyard make a perfectly set, tangy jam. It'll stain your fingers and your tongue a delicious grapey purple! When harvesting, make sure you get some of the green (unripe) grapes in your basket: they have more pectin which makes for a better set. Makes 6 250mL (1/2 pint) jars, 2-tbsp servings.
