Canned Grape Juice......

Found this on a canning site and want to try this in the fall.  Putting it here so I do not lose it...
sounds great but have not tried it......

Canned Grape Juicemakes three quart  jars
3 cups whole grapes, off the vine
1 cup sugar
10 cups water

  1. Sterilize your jars and lids.
  2. Stem, wash, and drain grapes.
  3. Prepare a syrup by combining the sugar and water and bringing it to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Add 1 cup of grapes to each quart jar. Ladle hot syrup into jars, being sure to release the air bubbles, until there’s 1 inch headspace.
  5. Wipe the rims and seal the jar.
  6. Process in a boiling water bath for twenty minutes (start counting once the water has reached a boil), more depending on altitude.
  7. I read where this does not have to be 20 min that 10 is also good....  but I will prob go the twenty just to make sure....
