1. Wash & stem grapes. Measure 10 cups. Remove skins from half of the grapes; set aside.

Measure 3 cups of strained puldp; return to pot. Stir in the uncooked grape skins & water. Cook, covered, for 10 minutes. Uncover, stir in sugar. Bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring often. Boil uncovered, about 12 minutes or till jam sheets off a metal spoon.

3. Remove pot from heat; quickly skim off foam with a metal spoon.
