Old Fashioned Grape Juice
Submitted by: Ken Buckler, Boonsboro, MD (Originally from "The Community Cookbook - 1914 - Now Public Domain)
Note: This is the same method used by my Grandmother.
Stem grapes and put them into a kettle with enough water to show. Heat slowly, until grapes are soft enough to mash. Put them in a cheese-cloth bag, and when cool enough, press till every drop of juice is extracted. To two quarts of juice add one cup of sugar; heat and stir until sugar is thoroughly dissolved. Bottle, cork and seal. When serving this drink, dilute with water according to taste.
