Muscadine Jelly

Makes 8-10 pints
4 quarts ripe Muscadine grapes
2 2/3 cups sugar
2 pkg. of pectin

Take off the stems and wash Muscadines in a large pot. Rinse several times. Then mash the Muscadines and fill pot with water just about 2 inches covering over them.
Simmer for 25 minutes. Pour the juice into another pot through a colander to catch the seeds and skins. Strain through cheesecloth back into the original pot. Heat to boiling. Boil juice for 5 minutes and then add the sugar.
Turn down heat to a simmer and cook until it reaches 220 degrees F on a candy thermometer. "This took me around 30 minutes. The directions on the pectin will tell you how to test it.
Skim off the foam. I had my jelly jars already washed and sterilized in another pot filled with hot water. You should sterilize jelly containers in boiling water for 10 minutes before using them. Then keep the containers hot in hot water until you use them. This will keep them from breaking when you fill them with hot jelly. In another small pot there was the lids and seals in hot water. Pour the juice into the jars with a funnel. Put the seals and then the lids on. I wiped the edges of the jar tops with a damp, hot paper towel.
Process your jelly for 15 minutes in boiling water. Allow 2 to 4 inches of water above jar tops for brisk boiling - just enough for the water to cover the tops of jars and have space to boil freely. Then carefully remove the jars and place them on a towel out of a draft.

Raspberry Pluot Pinwheel Tart

  • Wednesday, August 03, 2011

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup (or more) ice water
  • 1 large egg white, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup almond flour or ground almonds
  • 1 & 3/4 pounds Pluots (about 5 large or 12 small, preferably Raspberry variety but any will do!)
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
For crust:
Whisk flours, sugar, and salt in large bowl. Add butter. Using fingertips, rub in butter until coarse meal forms. Add 1/4 cup ice water, stirring until clumps form, adding more water by teaspoonfuls if dough is dry. Gather into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap in plastic; chill 1 hour. 
DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 day ahead. Keep chilled. Let rest 15 minutes at room temperature before rolling out.
Preheat oven to 425°F. Place sheet of parchment on work surface; sprinkle with flour. Roll out crust on parchment to 13-inch round. Using pot lid as guide, trim dough to 12-inch round. Slide crust on parchment onto rimless baking sheet. Chill dough.

For meringue:
Using electric mixer, beat egg white in medium bowl until foamy. With machine running, gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, beating until firm peaks form. Fold in almond meal. Set 1 Pluot, stem side up, on work surface. Working parallel to pit, cut 1/8-inch-thick rounds off both sides of Pluot. Repeat with remaining Pluots.
Spread meringue over crust. Arrange Pluot slices, slightly overlapping, in spiral pattern atop meringue, beginning at outer edge and working toward center, turning any end pieces cut side up. Finish with 1 Pluot slice in center. Brush melted butter over Pluots; sprinkle tart with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake tart 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 400°F and bake tart until edges are brown, about 20 minutes. Cool tart slightly on pan. Loosen with spatula. Serve warm or at room temperature.
