Grape Harvesting Time

We have barely touched the surface. This is the first batch from this year's harvest. Each year, I try to simplify the process. Not sure yet what I am going to do this year. I do know that I like using the juice extractor. The only thing, is that there is still quite a bit of juice left in the pulp. The seeds tend to hold in the juice.

This bowl weighed in at 7 lbs. 9 oz. The weight of the bowl has been deducted from the weight total. 

We filled 3 more large bowls with grapes this evening. We are about a 1/4 a way through this year's crop. I have my work cut out for me. It is time to put of the sewing to make grape juice and grape jelly. I get so many compliments on my jelly. Someone told me that it was better than a well known brand. The first or second year that I made the home made jelly from the California Rodger Red grapes, my oldest son took some with him on his college field work trips. The professors were eager to take more jars of jelly off my hands. One took the jelly home. His young daughter didn't like jelly, but he put some on her pancakes. With a face full of jelly, she asked for more. She didn't eat the pancake, rather she only wanted the grape jelly.
