Boiling Grapes in Water— A Fine Recipe

A few days ago I found that the grapes in the fridge were almost rotten, and they did not taste very well. Since throwing these grapes out would be too wasteful, I decided to try something new with them— to boil them in water.

I put all of the grapes into a cooking pot, and added enough water so that the surface of the water would cover all the grapes. Then, I heated the pot until the water started to boil. At that point, I started using my spoon to squash all the grapes, and then I continued to heat the pot until the grapes could not decompose any further (or about 1 hour after). At the end the mixture looked like this:

The solid things that you see are the peels/skins

And another picture...

The thick mixture tasted very sweet (in a good way), and the grape peels had very good texture.The things you saw in the pictures were ready to serve! Of course you could cool it or even freeze it (I actually think it tastes best when frozen), or add a bit water to make it less concentrated.

Does it look better in a cup?

Overall, I think this went rather successful—the product was wonderful! Next time if your grapes are almost rotten, you may want to consider doing this too. :)

  4. Very nice post. I definitely appreciate this site. Stick with it!

  5. I added a bunch (4) of beef hot dogs , cut into 1 inch pieces. as they were also starting to turn. The boiling temperature was enough to kill all of the mold and spoilage. The flavor of the natural grape sugars seemed to marry well with the saltiness of the [Boars Head] beef wieners. I served this in a split potato roll with a bed of sauerkraut. It paired well with a Marzen (room temperature , 4 of them), followed up with a medium to good quality Dominican hand made cigar. Arturo Fuente Hemingway would be a good choice for this sort of fare. After this gastronomic treat, A pint of fine Polish potato vodka will bring a note of perfection to an otherwise ordinary day.
