- 4 quarts Scuppernong or Muscadine grapes
- 1 quart boiling water
- 2 1/4 cups sugar

- Stem and wash the grapes; drain well.
- In a large stoneware crock or bowl, mash grapes well.
- Pour boiling water over the mashed grapes.
- Cover the container with a double thickness of cheesecloth and leave in a cool, dark place for 24 hours.
- On the second day add the sugar, replace the cheesecloth covering, and leave for another 24 hours.
- Next day, strain out pulp, seeds, and skins, extracting as much juice as possible. Cover with fresh cheesecloth and leave for 3 days longer (days 4, 5, and 6).
