Frost is imminent here in Minnesota, so we needed to pick grapes. Our good friends bought a house this summer and they found out they have lots of grapevine on their fence. The grapes were really good, and they didn't want them this year, so I said I would take them and can some grape juice with my grandma. We pulled the grapes last night since it is supposed to frost this weekend.
We gathered them all in bags and brought them home. I had to lay them out in a single layer, using every. single. last. pan or tray I have. I do this so they don't get squished and lose all their juice before I am ready to can. They are very heavy, and just the weight of the grapes will smash the ones on the bottom if you're not careful.
Holy grapes, Batman!
Then I stacked them in my fridge to wait until canning day on Sunday! Hopefully, I will remember to take lots of pictures on Sunday so I can document my first attempt at canning!
