The Tyrrany of the Garden...Produce
So what am I going to do with all these muskies? I still have jam from last year, so this year I am experimenting: muscadine juice concentrate, muscadine sorbet and frozen yogurt, muscadine syrup for pancakes and waffles. And if any of these concoctions come out well, I will post the results on the blog.
Oh, by way, I am not yet half way through muscadine harvest season. Wish I liked muscadine wine.
[FYI, unlike other grapes, muscadines, native to the southern US, are hardy, sturdy and grow with little to no trouble, but you do have to prune them. For example, my neighbors driveway is next to the fence they are on. One week, he left his car, which has a roof rack, parked for 4 or 5 days and...wait for it... the vines twined around his roof rack and he had to cut them off! The vine that ate the car!].
