Making grape jelly with rosemary
After the grape harvest, you can go into the vineyard to pick the little bunches of grapes that have stuck around. I like to ask the winemaker first but that is usually no problem and afterwards, of course, I then give them a few jars of this delicious jelly.
During a fine walk, I had picked a few branches of rosemary and 5.8 kilos of grapes. These gave me 3.6 kilos of grape juice and 9 jars of grape jelly.
This jelly is very tasty with cheese or just on a slice of bread!
