Choose firm but ripe grapes. Wash and dry gently them.
Remove berries from the stalk and put them in a saucepan.
Bring to the boil; when the mixture begins boiling, lower the flame and continue cooking, half-covered, stirring gently for about 20-25 minutes.
Then squash berries and cook for 5-10 minutes.
Pass berries through a vegetable mill or mash, then sieve to remove their seeds.
Weigh the mixture and add 75g (2 2/3 ounces) sugar every 100g (3 1/2 ounces) mixture.
Bring to the boil again; lower the flame and continue cooking, skimming repeatedly, until the jelly is thickened (you can taste the jelly in this way: let a jelly drop fall over a cold dish; the drop has to set quickly).
Let the jelly cool, pour into your glass jars and sterilize for an hour.


  • - This jelly is delicious on buttered toast bread.
  • - But a real touch of class is to serve it with cheese.
    If you want to surprise your guests, close your lunch in this way.
    You'd choose fresh cheese.
    We remember to you cheese mustn't be served in the evening.
