|Take that you grapey beasts!|
Making jelly sure is messy, but I think the time spent making my kitchen sticky was worth it. I now have 22 jars of grape jelly to give as gifts to friends and family. I'm thinking about offering a jar as a giveaway the last day of MoFo. Is that strange? Would people not really be into a homemade jar of grape jelly? Tell me!

Tonight I had my first "real" taste (this excludes what was happening as I was cleaning up the stick jelly-cooking pot!) of the grape jelly on a homemade biscuit with some organic Earth Balance. I base my biscuits off of the recipe found in Vegan Comfort Food, but I use canola oil instead of margarine, and just mix the wet ingredients right into the dry. Also, I don't actually measure the anything!
Oh man! This was really good. I'm thrilled with how the jelly came out and, really, this was the perfect way to enjoy it. Although, I'm thinking about making grape jelly scones this week too.
UPDATE: I forgot to link to the recipe I used for the jelly. Here it is! Also, I'm replacing that horrible nighttime photo with one taken this morning!
