Grape Syrup
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Yields about 200ml (or ¾ cup + 4 teaspoons) of syrup.
  • 400g (or about 14 ounces) blue table grapes
  • 35g (or 3 tablespoons) of sugar
  1. Wash and stem the grapes and add them to a large pan. Mix in the sugar with a wooden spoon. If your grapes were dry before you added them to the pan, add 2 tbsp of water. If your grapes were still wet from washing, don't add any more water.
  2. Over medium-high heat, heat the mixture, stirring continuously until the sugar has dissolved. Once the sugar has dissolved, crank up the heat and bring the grapes to a boil. Cook the grapes for 5 minutes (without a lid) or until the fruit has softened. Skim off the scum with a slotted spoon.
  3. Once the fruit has softened, pass them through a food mill and discard the seeds and skins that are left behind. Pass the grape puree through a strainer to get rid of any small seeds, then pour it back into the pan and bring it to a boil. Leave to cook over high heat for 10 minutes. Set aside and leave to cool to room temperature.
  4. Can be stored, covered in the fridge, for up to 1 week.
