The kids had a blast picking the grapes and rinsing them off before we brought them into the house.
I separated them into freezer bags, that way I could freeze the ones I don't make jam with and use them for snacks.
Next, I put them in a big pot with one cup of water and started to boil them. As I was boiling them I used a potato masher to smash them. After you bring it to a boil add one package of fruit pectin and about 5 Cups of sugar while continuing to stir. Then bring it down to a simmer for about 5 min. You will then bring it back to a boil stirring the whole time. Put them in your cans immediately.
Let them stand for about 30 min. then put them in the freezer.
The next morning we had some awesome jam and I'm not just saying that because I made it. It really turned out great. I am so proud of myself. Ha ha
