So I made fresh grape juice. We don't drink much juice in general, but the husband really likes it. I hesitate to call this a recipe - it's so easy. I can imagine that some people would want to add sugar, but I didn't. Use any combination of grape colors, but (duh) the more red and black grapes you use, the more vibrantly purple the juice will be. I had seedless grapes, but you could probably use seeded ones too, since you'll be straining.
Fresh grape juice
Think grape juice only comes in a bottle? Try this fresh version and you'll never go back.
- 1 pound seedless California grapes, any combination of red, green and black
- about 1/2 cup water
Fill the jar of your blender 3/4 of the way with grapes and add a splash of water. Blend on high at least 1 minute. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve over a large bowl, pressing down on the solids in the strainer with a large spoon to extract every last bit of juice. Serve chilled.
