Muscadine Grape Jam

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.


  1. Love muscadines! I remember picking them from the wild vines that covered the trees on my uncle's farm. Wonderful childhood memories. Your jam looks yummy.
    And, I tried to post a comment on your previous post about your Jack Sparrow necklace. I LOVE the necklace. Love it!! It even looks like Jack Sparrow. I'm pea green with envy that you can make something so pretty. Wish I were more crafy.
