Grape Must and Grape Molasses

Method

  • Squeeze the grapes and pass the juice through a sieve that has a double lining of cheese cloth. If you use a blender, the juice will come out cloudy, not clear.  
  • The micro-organisms in the grape peel start to ferment the must. This is the process that turns it in to wine.
  • To stop this process, we need to boil the juice.
  • In the past, ash was used to make this process easier. Ash makes the grape juice froth a great deal while boiling.
  • Since we are using natural, organic grapes, we don’t need to do this.
  • Pour the grape juice in to a large pot and boil over medium heat. Skim the froth often. Most of the froth will come up when you first begin to boil. After a while, it will stop and finally it will thicken.
  • This will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Pass the must through the sieve with the cheesecloth, again. Pour in to a glass bottle and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
  • To make grape molasses, we continue to boil the juice until it has condensed to 10% of its original volume.
  • Its texture should be just like thin honey.
  • Can also be stored out of the refrigerator, in a cool, dry place for months.
