Chunky Kyoho Grape Jam

Chunky Kyoho Grape Jam

This is a jam simmered with liquor. I made this without crushing the grapes, so it's easier to use not only for bread but also for desserts.

Ingredients: one 300 ml container

Kyoho grapes
1 kg without stems (3 bunches)
100 g
Lemon juice
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
Orange curaçao
1/2 tablespoon


1. Remove the seeds and skin from the grapes. Put the skin in a dashi stock bag. Refer to this recipe for an easy way to remove skin and seeds. (Recipe ID: 1563738)
2. In a pan, place the dashi stock bag with skin at the bottom and add grapes and other ingredients on top. Heat over medium-high heat.
3. When the corner stats to simmer, bring down to medium-low heat and simmer. Skim off the scum.
4. When the sauce turns to deep red purple, take out the dashi stock bag with skin and continue simmering.
5. When the sauce thickens, turn down the heat to low. Take a small amount of sauce in a cold metal spoon and check the thickness when it's cooled.
6. I baked it with almond cream tart (Recipe ID: 1565795).
