"Possum Grape" Jelly!

What does it take to make Jelly?

Well, you need fruit, and here we are making Wild (Organic) "Possum Grape" Jelly!
Mr. Babb (our neighbor) was kind to bring us the grapes he harvested from the tree tops.
Teeny little guys- pick them all off. (a long tedious, sticky job.)

Cook 'em and squeeze them. You have to work fast, and wash up frequently, or the acid will cut into your hands like fiber glass. Ouch!!

Now for the easy part~ make the jelly, can it up and label the jars!
