Concord Grape Juice

from ButterYum
makes 4 servings


  • 1 pound concord grapes, rinsed and stems removed
  • 1 cup water
  • more water, as needed, for serving


  1. Place grapes and water in a large casserole pan or deep skillet; use a potato masher to squash the grapes.
  2. Simmer over medium heat, mashing occasionally until the grapes break down as shown above.
  3. Remove from heat and strain grape seeds and skins from the liquid; cool completely.
  4. Taste juice and add cold water to dilute, if needed (I diluted my juice with equal parts water).  Refrigerate for up to a week.
