This gives a mild, sweet relish, very nice.

Date tried: August 28. 2012
Yield: 1 quart
Time needed: just a few minutes once the container has been sterilized.

I was pleasantly surprised, not only by how easy this is to put together, but by how good the resulting juice is.

Canned Grape Juice

Canned Grape Juice
1 cup/250 ml Concord-style grapes, washed
½ cup/125 ml sugar
boiling water to fill jar.

Place the grapes in a hot, sterilized quart jar.
Add the sugar and fill jar with boiling water to within ½ inch/1 cm of top.

Note: to avoid cracking jar, place a metal utensil such as a table knife in the jar to absorb the heat of the boiling water.

Stir briefly to dissolve sugar.
Seal jar with sterile lid.  No further processing is necessary.

To serve, just strain and discard the grapes.  The juice is ready to drink once chilled.

Bunna (Coffee with Egg Yolk)

Made: December 12, 2013
Yield: 1 serving
Time to make: Adds less than a minute to preparing coffee

The author describes this as “a rich and lovely treat and it’s good for you.”  I haven’t really found a noticeable change in the taste of the coffee, but certainly an egg yolk adds protein, energy and vitamins not found in coffee alone. So it’s a good way to start the day, or to give oneself a quick pick-me-up in the late afternoon.

A trick to remember, to avoid chunks of cooked yolk, is to begin by stirring a little hot liquid (no more than a tablespoon) into the yolk first.  Add more, stirring in one spoonful at a time, until it is liquidy enough to pour into the coffee.

I usually drink my coffee from a mug, but I put it in a wine glass so you could see the coffee.
