IS GRAPE JUICE HEALTHY?
WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED FOR HOMEMADE GRAPE JUICE
- 2 LBS grapes
- mesh strainer, to strain unwanted pulp
CAN I SUBSTITUTE HONEY FOR SUGAR!
Absolutely! Once again, depending on how sweet and ripe your grapes are will depend the amount you will want to add. You can start by blending the grapes and water, taste test it, and then add honey till desired sweetness.
HOW TO MAKE GRAPE JUICE WITHOUT A JUICER
FIRST: Wash grapes and take them off the vines. Make sure they’re sparkling clean!
Now that the grapes are washed, place your water into the blender and sugar.
Add all the grapes.
Blend on your smoothie or juicing setting. I usually run 2 cycles of this so make sure there are not clumps at all.
There will be bits of skin and pulp remaining in the juice. You can 100% drink the juice like this! But my kids prefer it strained. Using a fine strainer pour the juice through the strainer to remove the pulp.
HOW LONG DOES HOMEMADE GRAPE JUICE LAST
Because there are not a lot of processed preservatives or sugar added to the grape juice you need to use the grape juice 5-7 days after making it. Keep it chilled always. After about 5-7 days the grape juice will start to ferment.
CAN I FREEZE GRAPE JUICE
YES! If you are worries about not drinking the grape juice in the 5-7 days place juice in an air tight bag or container and thaw when ready to use.
