One of the pleasant benefits of our property are the grapes which grow wild up in the back. I'm not sure what kind they are exactly, but I think they are a type of concord grape. Of course, since they grow high, high, up in the trees, we need to be giants in order to pick and enjoy them. We were able to find a few low hanging ones, which we quickly picked. These do have seeds, so not so great for just eating. Instead, we put them on the stove with some water, smashed them up, and then strained them, to yield some lovely, grapey juice. This was strong, concentrated grape so we added water to make it a good drinking consistency. My husband can drink it just like this. I find it a little sour, so I add a little Splenda to mine.
One of our plans is to take cuttings from these vines and bring them closer to the ground. Then maybe we will be able to harvest enough to make some wine - yum!
