Need help using the muscadine crop

danna | Sep 21, 2005 03:13 PM

I don't want to make wine, and I'm very, very afraid of making jelly. I threw away my juicer this year because it was completely worthless (Krups).

So, any ideas on how to use my crop this year? I think I'm going to have a pretty good batch. Perhaps syrup for waffles? Any savory dishes? Any tips on how to separate the juice and pulp from the seeds and skin? Any tips on using the skin? I think the skins could be delicious if I chopped them in small pieces, but I'm not sure what to do after that.

Help greatly appreciated.

Oh, BTW, my dog is obsessed with muscadines and stands next to me while I pick, hoping to be fed a grape, or just the skin. I have seen him eat a few off the vines, but he looks around guiltily...he knows they aren't meant for him!
