Homemade grape jelly/jam is like summer in a jar!
September is the time for Uncle John’s Grape Jelly recipe. We are sharing this recipe again in honor and memory of my sweet Great Uncle John, he passed away at the age of 90! He was married to Aunt Mary for 57 years. He was a WWII Veteran, a Middle School Principal, basketball coach and a wonderful Uncle who taught us many things.
He left us with many priceless memories including secrets for amazing cooking, baking, gardening, fishing and canning. One of my favorite places to visit was his home. It gave me a peaceful feeling inside that is hard to find.
He loved to grow things and still worked in his garden at age 90, even with his walker!
When he passed he left a 20 foot concord grape vine overflowing with beautiful succulent grapes. I loved eating those grapes and admiring their beauty. Uncle John’s passions were people and food. I’m sharing one of those with you now……
