Concord Grape Jam
Make the best PB&J….EVER. Nick’s seasonal, local Concord Grape Jam, and small batch Cream-Nut Crunchy Natural Peanut Butter from Koeze
• 3 lbs concord grapes
• ½ cup honey
• sieve or cheesecloth
Rinse grapes and remove stems. Crush with your hands into a saucepan. Cook over medium heat, until grapes and skins form a purple syrup. Add honey and bring to a boil, lower heat and let simmer until syrup is thick and bubbly. The jam should drop heavily off the spoon,
if it is still liquid and runny, continue to cook until it thickens further. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
When mixture cools, press mixture through a sieve, or through layers of cheesecloth into a container. Be sure to press all of the syrup out of the skins through the sieve or cheesecloth.
TO ASSEMBLE, just in case…
Spread jam on a slice of your favorite bread, spread another slice of bread with Cream-Nut Natural Peanut Butter. Carefully lick the knife clean. Press slices together, cut off crusts if you want to feel like a pampered eight year old, slice diagonally, and serve.
