This is a fantastic yummy grape drink. It is fermented (read the benefits of this type of beverage here) so it takes a few days to be able to enjoy it…but it is so worth it!
Day 1: Start by buying 8 pounds of organic grapes (red, green or a mix of both. I did a mix of both and got a cute “pink” color!). Wash them, pull them off their stems and run them through a juicer.
This makes about 2 quarts of liquid. Pour into a large glass bowl. Add 1/4 cup of whey (this is the liquid whey reserved from making cream cheese-not powdered whey!) and 1/2 tablespoon of salt. Mix well, cover with tea cloth and rubber band. Set on top of the fridge (or anywhere else out of harms way) for three days.
Day 2-3: Occasionally check on it and skim foam/scum rising to the surface. (I do this in the morning and again at the end of the day to make sure the foam doesn’t get a chance to grow mold).
Day 3: Run grape juice through a tea cloth lined strainer. Pour into clean jars that seal tightly and store in fridge! I fit this in a quart jar and a 16 ounce jar. Serve 50/50 juice and mineral water. REVISION: LET SIT IN FRIDGE FOR 2 WEEKS OR MORE FOR A FANTASTIC FLAVOR CHANGE – TRULY AGES TO A BEAUTIFUL FULL GRAPE FLAVOR!
