Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time50 mins
Total Time1 hr
Servings: 1 jar
- 500 g/1lb 2oz red grapes
- 500 g/1lb 2oz apples
- Approx 1/2 cup water
- 300 ml/1/2 pint red wine
- juice of 1 lemon
- 300 g/11oz sugar
Place the grapes and roughly chopped apples (don't bother to peel or core them) into a pan and add water.
Simmer the fruit until tender and mash with a potato masher.
Pour this mash into a jelly bag (muslin lined sieve) and set aside to drip into a jug overnight. Resist any temptation to squeeze the bag to get more out, if you do this you'll make the jelly cloudy)
Make the juice in the jug up to 500ml by adding the wine.
Pour this into a pan and add the lemon juice and sugar and heat gently till sugar dissolved.
Raise the heat to boiling point for approximately 20 mins until you have reached the setting point (see jelly making page).
Carefully pour into a sterilised jar and pop on the lid.
