Homemade Grape Soda

I picked some green grapes this past week from the community plot and since I was also given a bunch of concord grapes, I processed them in a food mill. The result was a strong flavoured grape syrup I used to make the best ever grape soda.

First I cooked the grapes to loosen their skins.

 

 

I then ran them through the food mill which left me with a thick pulp. The mill did a pretty good job of removing the skins, but even with the finest screen on the seeds still got through. I look forward to trying it again to make applesauce.

I strained the pulp through a fine sieve, cooled it down, added some soda and, voila, homemade grape soda. It looks pretty much the same as the blackberry cordial I made a few weeks ago but the flavour is completely different (like comparing grapes and blackberries).

 

If I ran it through a jelly bag I would have had a clearer liquid, but I didn’t have one and I certainly don’t mind the homemade look of this drink. It tasted so good that it was gone in an instant anyhow. Luckily I still have lots of syrup left over to make more.

  1. This looks so nice and refreshing.

    I love the idea of making these fruit concentrates and syrups.

    A foodmill is next on my wish list.

  2. What if I told you that weight training soccer is aimed at enhancing strength
    rather than the building of muscle mass, especially the
    growth of muscle groups that support the joints. Technology often shapes
    our businesses in many different ways. Water submersion cooling is conducted by supplies like natural oils,
    the location where the CPU can be immersed.

  3. I have an old juicer, from back in the day when juicing everything was a thing, and was thinking of usung this instead of the food mill. Please let me know why or why not this could be possible. Thank you.
