Grape Relish

Yield about 5 half pints


  • 4 pounds Concord grapes
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves

How to Make It

  1. Wash and drain grapes; remove stems. Plunge grapes into rapidly boiling water; boil 2 minutes. Drain well, and slip off grape skins, reserving skins and pulp.

  2. Place pulp in a stainless steel stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Process pulp through a food mill; discard seeds.

  3. Combine sugar, vinegar, cinnamon, and cloves in Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; add reserved hulls and pulp. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 1 hour and 45 minutes or until tender.

  4. Quickly ladle relish into hot sterilized jars, leaving 1/2-inch head space. Cover at once with metal lids, and screw bands tight. Process relish in boiling water bath 15 minutes. Serve with meats.
