Finally, after 8 years of growing grapes in our backyard we hit the jackpot! I harvested 7 pounds of red grapes this afternoon! I got to them before they turned into raisins, before the birds ate them and frankly before I forgot about them, again. I don't remember the exact grapes that we planted but I think these are red wine grapes. They taste sweet, have a tiny seed and are very juicy.
So now, what to do with 7 pounds of grapes? Attempt to make a very small bottle of wine? Grape juice? Grape jam? Let me know what you think I should make and if you have any advice for how to go about making wine.
