Lost recipe, grape candy/gelatin

Whyowhy | Dec 11, 201010:31 AM     15

My grandmother used to grow grapes and would use the juice to make a candy like treat that I fondly remember. She would pour a liquid into little shallow bowls and leave them all over the spare rooms to dry out. The result was a wonderfully sweet but subtle confection that was a cross between a gummy bear and jello. It was opaque,and plum colored. We would cut it into little wedges. I've had no luck finding any sort of recipe. My grandmom was a native of southern Italy, and my grandfather was Sicilian, so the recipe may be of Italian descent. Anyone know of something of the sort? Looking for a recipe or name of the treat.
Many thanks!
