I made this amazingly delicious, beautiful Grape Jam! I mean just look at the colour! And the taste just right with the correct amount of sweetness and tart mixed.

Breakfast is such a delicious pleasure! Wait did I say breakfast then what about lunch with Grape jam spread on the chapati? In between snack? or Dinner! you get my point.

Grape Jam

I love black grapes.  The fact that I have a  bad throat after eating them is secondary. I have to eat them even as a child my grandparents used to take me to Vrindavan Gardens, Mysore and I used to not budge from there till they brought me black grapes juice. Wish they were around now I would love to enjoy grape juice with them. Come to think of it, they would have loved this jam and gone around telling everyone they meet about the grape jam.

So when I see them and the weather is good I do buy them. I end up buying more than I need.

Around this time I picked up pectin … need I say more. The end product is in front of you.

When I am making a jam, my intention is to preserve the fruit. I do not think of all the vitamins or food nutrition values. There are some things that you have to enjoy and jam is one of them.

Enjoy the jam and the delicious toast I made with it.

Grape Jam

A delicious and colourful jam that is tart and sweet too!
Prep Time45 mins
Cook Time1 hr 30 mins
Total Time2 hrs 15 mins
Course: Bachelor Recipes, Condiments, Do it yourself (DIY), Jam, Kid-Friendly
Cuisine: World
Servings: 8 Cups


  • 1-1/2 kilogram grapes seedless
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1-1/4 cup Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Pectin
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup Lemon juice


  • Wash and remove the grapes from the stems. I generally soak them for1-2 hours in salted water.
  • Remove the spoilt grapes. Bruised and split a strict no-no. We want the jam to last.
  • In a thick bottomed and nonreactive pan add the water and grapes bring to a boil.
  • Simmer the grapes stirring occasionally. It will be a great idea to crush the grapes. After about 10 minutes switch off the gas.
  • Let the grapes mixture cool slightly.
  • Now you have 2 choices you can crush the grapes and sieve the skins or just crush the grapes and continue.
  • Here I have kept the skins.
  • Measure the grapes pulp. I had a little over 4 cups.
  • Use the same pan in which you had boiled the grapes add the sugar, grapes pulp, lemon juice and the pectin (since mine was powdered pectin).
  • Run the blender once to dissolve the pectin.
  • Bring to boil and cook the mixture continuously.
  • The mixture will start thickening. Check if the jam is done.How?Do the plate test( link below).
  • Once the jam is done it will set like a jam/jelly.
  • Switch off heat and skim any foam with a spoon.
  • Ladle jam into bottles set on wooden tray.
  • Cool fully before storing the jam.

    ate so much grape jam as a child because PB & grape jam was my lunch almost every day on school days. my older sister would make my lunch and she had no creativity that I grew to hate it. but this gorgeous color and consistency is tempting me to try it again as I do love grapes!
