Grape Juice

1 1/2 bushels of Concord Grapes
26 Quarts of Grape Juice
4 pints of Grape Juice
My hubby is really annoyed with me. He claimed I have a one track mind and I neglected the kids and house to make juice. Maybe their is some truth but what's a girl to do. I had to make my grape juice. Meg is picking up the rest of my grapes and the juicer in the morning. I tried to take a picture but my memory stick isn't working!

wow that is a lot of juice! I am excited to make mine tomorrow. I decided not to go pick any because I think a 1/2 bushel will be plenty for a few quarts of juice concentrate and a batch of buying your last box works out perfectly!

When I was doing green beans with Hilary I was complaining about how it just takes over and I can't get anything else done. She's been canning for years and gave me some good advice to tell the family: Just accept the fact that canning day is canning day and you aren't going to accomplish anything else. Dinner will be a "fend for yourself" night, and the kitchen will be a mess...but when the day is over and you have cleaned up the mess you can look at the finished product and be proud of what you did with your time. It's just one day. Take the kids to the park tomorrow and make a decent meal and all will be forgotten. It's better for your kids to see you doing one good thing for your family, than see you all stressed about trying to do everything. I'll call you in the morning before I stop by.
26 quarts!
Good job!
