   Grapes were cultivated 6,000 years ago in Europe. There are over 60 varieties of grapes that are cultivated for wine making and over 50 varieties are in current production as table grapes. Over 200 years ago, Franciscan monks brought grapes to California for the purpose of making sacramental wine. As the population grew, more grape varieties were introduced. 40 years later, the first vineyard for table grapes was planted. Grapes may be classified as red, blue and white - which are actually pale green in color. Each kind has its own particular character for wine making and as a table grape. Grapes, like fruit trees, require a stable climate in order to provide a dependable growing environment. Grapes are an excellent source of potassium, which encourages an alkaline blood balance and also stimulates the kidneys and regulates heartbeat.  The restorative power of grapes is phenomenal, cleansing the liver and removing the uric acid from the body.  Grapes also contain a phytochemical that appears to protect each cell's DNA from damage.

A Simple Grape Juice

Grapes

Cook on High until the water starts to boil, maybe 3 minutes. Simmer on Very Low for 30 minutes. Take a flat spatula and smoosh the rest of the juice from the wrinkled grapes, letting it drain into the bottom of the pot. Toss the stems and spent grapes from the top of the steamer and keep the juice from the bottom of the pan. You can drink it straight, or add up to 50% water to taste or do what I do and add some honey while it's still hot. You can also freeze it or put it into canning jars and can it for winter use.

Grape Juice
Ingredients:

A colander for rinsing the grapes
Instructions:
Get a large basket, wear long sleaves and a hat, bring clippers, and fill up the basket with grape bunches. Keep in mind that a pound of grapes will yield a little less than a cup of juice. Put grapes in a basin filled with water. Then rinse the individual grapes, picking them away from the stem, collecting the grapes in a large bowl, and discarding the green unripe and old shriveled grapes. With a potato masher, mash away at the grapes so the juice begins to flow. If you have picked a lot of grapes, you may need to work in batches. We have found it easiest to mash about 4 lbs of grapes at a time. Put the mashed grapes into a large stockpot. Slowly heat the grapes and juice to a simmer on medium heat and then simmer for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally so that the grapes don't stick to the bottom of the pan. Halfway through cooking mash some more, breaking up as many of the remaining grapes as possible. Get another large pot, place a large fine mesh sieve over it. Alternatively you can cover it with two layers of cheesecloth, secure with a rubber band. Make sure pot is sitting on a plate to catch any juice that may run over. Ladle grape mixture over sieve or cheesecloth to strain. Let sit for several hours or overnight in the refrigerator to strain completely. Remove sieve or cheesecloth. Note that sediment will have formed on the bottom of the container. Rinse out the sieve or cheesecloth and strain the juice again, to filter out some of the sediment. Pour or ladle juice into containers.
