To Pickle Grapes
Let not your grapes be fully ripe; their pickle is white wine and sugar
2 pounds seedless grapes
1 1/2 cups water
2 cups white wine
½ tsp salt
1 cup sugar (or to taste)
Make syrup by combining sugar and water together and simmering until dissolved. Let cool.
Wash and dry the grapes, cutting into small bundles of grapes and removing bad grapes. Place grapes into sterilized jars filling them about ¾ full.
Add wine to syrup and fill each jar with liquid. Additional spices can be added at this point. Leave to steep, shaking jars once or twice a week.
