Concord Grape Bread

1 cup Concord grapes
2 1/3 cups sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup walnuts and/or coconut

Remove grapes from stems and wash. Slip skins from grapes and set them aside. Bring pulp to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Press through sieve to remove seeds. Add skins to pulp, and place in a blender for a few seconds. Bring grapes to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Mix together 1/3 cup sugar and cornstarch until well blended. Add this mixture and the lemon juice to the grape pulp and bring to a boil again. Cook for 5 minutes until thick. Allow to cool. Add eggs, oil, 2 cups sugar, and vanilla. Sift together the dry ingredients and add them to the grape mixture. Stir until moistened. Fold in nuts and/or coconut. Pour into two greased and floured 9″ x 5″ bread pans. Bake at 350° for approximately one hour.

Hi, found this recipe yesterday , as i wanted something else besides grape jelly, I just happened to have just picked some grapes at my daughters,( her neighbour’s vines just happens to grow over her hedges LOL onto her side of the fence), and decided to try out this bread, a little longer to put together , because of the special treatment of the grapes , but once you capture the to do’s, It is delicious, one thing that I will be changing tho is the amount of sugar, way too much I will be cutting the quantity in 1/2, even tho it makes 2 sweet bread, too much is too much, but then again likes are chosen by tastes, So please folks that are just running in take a stab at this cake, it is delicious.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
