May the roof above us never fall in
And may we good companions beneath it never fall out.

Mrs Ellen Skennar's Grape Jam Recipe

One lonely bunch of grapes on the grapevine this year. I may need to drop in to the carpark next door and pinch some of the masses on it's self seeded children. I'd love to try the recipe below.

Grape Jam

Chef: Mrs Ellen Skennar
Herberton, Queensland
In the ABC Gardening Talkback Great Home-made Pickles and Jam Challenge, this recipe won first prize in the Best Jam category.

Mrs. Ellen Skennar from Herberton uses Herberton Isabella Grapes in her jam and the recipe originates from a vineyard that grew a variety of grapes for eating and wine making.

Squeeze Isabella grapes so that skins are in one saucepan and pulp in another.

Cook skins with small amount of water with lid on for 10 minutes.

Cook pulp for 10 minutes then rub through coarse strainer.

Combine sieved pulp with the skins and measure cup for cup with sugar.

Cook about 20 minutes until set.
