SPECIAL GRAPE JUICE RECIPE
Conventional grape juice is prepared by blending grape in juicer. This recipe is different and unique.
So tasty !!
1. Grapes (You should take care to select grapes for making this drink. Grapes should be wine grapes, the darker ones and must have ripened well) - 1 kg
2. Sugar - 1 kg.
3. Tonovin or grape essence - 1 teaspoonful
4. Water - 2 liters.
Boil grape in 2 liters of water. You should take care during this process, as grapes should not be overcooked. Check up to see the skin of grapes broken. At this stage, remove from fire at once.
Remove grapes from the water using a strainer. Keep aside the water used to boil grapes. Remove skin of grapes. You can do it easily only if grapes are ripened well. After separating skin from grapes, mash the skin with some of the boiled water and strain the juice to the boiled water, so that the color of the grapes can be taken from the grapes completely.
Now add sugar to the water used to boil grapes. Place on fire. Boil until sugar dissolves in it completely. Remove from fire. Let it cool down. Add tonovin essence.
Now is the process to take utmost care. Add skinned grape pulp to the sugar syrup. Take this in a big deep vessel. Take another big deep vessel and pour grape juice to the other vessel from height. Now pour back this to the other vessel. Do this beating process 6-8 times. By this process, seeds of grapes will be removed from the grape pulp and will be collected underneath of vessel and grape pulp will come to the surface of the juice. Remove the seeds collected underneath.
Chill this juice in fridge. Serve. This juice is so different. Grape pulps floating on the surface of the juice and you can eat them while drinking the juice, ahhhaaaa, l love this juice...
