We picked wild mustang grapes, cooked them, strained them, juiced them and jellied them!
We have whipped up 2 batches of homemade cheese- 1 mozzarella/ 1 ricotta- from store bought milk.
We gathered wild figs from nearby trees and cooked them into preserves. (They are DELICIOUS served warm, especially with ice cream!)
AND... we mixed up our own grape juice from left over mustang juice.. adding apple juice concentrate and sugar for sweetener.
It was all very inexpensive and educational for us. Plus, now the kids can have peanut butter and jelly all year and we've only spent $8 or $10 on jelly to last that long..now if only we can figure out how to make peanut butter.... look for that in later posts!!!!
