Making grape jelly with rosemary


Making grape jelly with rosemary is not difficult. 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.
