making grape jelly

Adeline and I spent the weekend at my parents’ house, and (as is often the case) for most of the visit we were in the kitchen: cooking, eating, baking, eating, and — on this occasion — making jelly from the grapes in my parents’ backyard.  We decided to document the process for posterity.

jelly love

Loving the jelly.  (Bonus jelly in the background — my mother-in-law’s yummy plum jelly made from her own homegrown plums!)  Can there ever be too much jelly?  I think not.
