How Much Is Too Much Jam?

Remember a few weeks ago when I said we went grape picking? Well, i turned those 8 pounds of grapes into jelly. 8 pounds made 8 pints. But here's why I'm telling you this. I'm not a big fan of grape jelly. I never buy it unless the other folks in the family request it. It tastes like wet dog to me. But HOMEMADE grape jelly? YUMMY! No artificial flavor or texture. It actually tastes like grapes. I'm loving it. Extracting the juice takes a little time, but it is so worth it. Not to mention the whole house fills with the tangy sweet smell of fresh crushed grapes. MMMmmmmmm.

so good to know! I don't like grape jelley or jam from the store too! I will just have to make it homemade! :) Sounds yummy!
