|4 cup ||1000 mL||Coronatiopn grapes|
|1 cup ||250 mL ||white sugar|
|1/4 cup ||60 mL ||cornstarch|
- Take the grapes off their stems and rinse them in the strainer.
- In a separate bowl, mix the sugar and the cornstarch.
- Mix the sugar mixture with the grapes in a large measuring cup or bowl.
Heat the grapes mixture in the microwave. Stop every 2 minutes to stir the mixture. The mixture is done when it turns from white and cloudy to dark and thick.
- The mixture may bubble up. Stopping and stirring every 2 minutes reduces this, but does not eliminate it.
- The mixture will get somewhat shorter and denser as it cooks.
- The edges will cook faster, so make sure that you stir well.
- There may be bubbles trapped in the mixture that break as you stir it. This is not a problem.
- Optionally, blend the mixture with the handblender to make it smooth.
- You can also use Concord grapes, but those have seeds. HOW DO YOU GET THE SEEDS OUT?
- You can only buy Coronation grapes in the fall.
- Coronation graopes don't keep well. You need to cook them within a few days of buying them or they will go moldy.
