Recipe: Grape Catsup

Perhaps the best-known catsup made from fruit is grape catsup. Its uses are practically the same as those of tomato catsup, and it is made in much the same way.

  •  4 qt. Concord grapes
  •  3 c. vinegar
  •  1 lb. brown sugar
  •  2 Tb. cinnamon
  •  1 tsp. cloves
  •  1 tsp. allspice

Put the grapes to cook with the vinegar. When they have cooked soft enough, press through a sieve to remove the seeds and skins. Add the sugar and spices, and cook until the mixture is rather thick. Stir constantly to prevent scorching. Pour into sterilized bottles, seal, cool, and store.
