Along with the rivers of hot tea I am consuming this winter to stave off internal chill, I am enjoying jars of autumn goodness that bring to mind the smells and coziness of fall.
That goodness is . . . Muscadine Grape Jam.
Please note hot tea and toast, looking lonely.
Enter Muscadine Grape Jam to bring the rustic sweetness of the vineyard right to my chilly winter table.
I have a friend who grows organic muscadines right on her property.
The grapes are harvested by these two little scamps of hers and delivered in bulging 2-pound bags, which I attempt to save for jam-making.
I regret to say that one day I lost all control and ate a full 1 1/2 pounds of muscadines straight out of the bag. I learned quickly that the human digestive system was not created for such.
My digestive system has no problem at all, however, with multiple cups of hot tea and a slice of ancient grain bread spread thickly with Muscadine Grape Jam.
Or maybe two.
