grape jam

I had some grapes in the fridge, which i couldn't eat because I have a bad throat.. It was hard to resist the temptation, so I decided to use them up and make some jam..
It turned out good!

Time taken- 20 mins
1 cup grapes
3/4 cup water

Wash grapes (Cleanliness is next to godliness!) Mix with water and cook in microwave on full power for 8 mins. Keep in a deep bowl else mixture will boil over!

Let it cool and blend it for a minute in a blender. Turn it into a heavy bottomed pan, mix 1/4 cup honey (if grapes are sour and you like extra sweetness, u can increase this to 1/2, if you don't have honey, sub it with sugar!)

Simmer on gas and let it cook for 10 odd minutes. You can see the mixture thickening. take a spoonful and check it on a chilled plate or spoon (keep a spoon in the freezer when you put the mixture on gas)

You can add some lemon juice or vanilla, or enjoy it just as it is! Tasted awesome with parathas :)
