Unfermented Grape Juice without Water

When grape juice is made without water, it is both thick and rich. Consequently, it should usually be diluted with water when it is served as a beverage.


  • 12 quarts grapes
  • 3 pounds sugar


Wash the grapes, remove them from the stems, and put them into a preserving kettle. Heat very slowly and mash with a spoon, so that enough juice will be pressed out and thus prevent the grapes from scorching. Remove the juice as it forms and put it into a jelly bag. When all of it has been taken from the grapes and strained through the jelly bag, strain the pulp and put all the juice into a preserving kettle, add the sugar, and bring to the boiling point. Pour into bottles or jars, seal, and sterilize in a water bath for about 5 minutes.
