This Grape juice tastes real yummy chewing those pulp in between the drink.These are the Indian black Grapes that when pressed or squeezed the outer part (the skin),the pulp pops out.Only few of its pulp have a sweet taste, the others have a tangy taste.Normally the outer part of this grapes is not eaten due to its sour taste.But it tastes best and yummy when prepared juice with it. Now on to the recipe...Ingredients
1.Grapes(black) 500g(de-stem and wash thoroughly)
2.Water(normal) 2 cups
Cold water 4 cups
3.Sugar 11/4 cup
-In a bowl(use a large one) add the grapes and mash
them (Use a potato masher or simply with your hand).
-Now separate the seeds and skin from the pulp(you can transfer the mashed grapes onto a flat plate,this makes it easier for separating the pulp)
-Refrigerate the pulp.
-Now in a saucepan boil 2 cups of water along with the separated portion (seeds and outer portion - excluding the pulp).
-Let it boil* for 5 to 7 minutes, then off the flame. Allow it to cool.
-When cooled strain the juice from this mixture using a juice strainer.
-Add sugar to the strained juice,mix well till the sugar dissolves completely.
-Now add 4 cups of cold water and the leftover(strained)mixture into a blender and pulse it (just 2-3 times) and strain this mix through the juice strainer into the previous juice.
-Mix well adding the refrigerated pulp and serve.
*While boiling, the mixture might spill so(stay there itself) and adjust the flame accordingly.
*If you like the juice chilled refrigerate it (after the whole process) and serve after sometime.

By mashing will the grape pulp be intact ,won't they be broken?ReplyDelete
By mashing,you are only removing the hard skin and the seeds of the grapes.Then you keep the pulp aside and add it only in the end.Delete
