Making Grape Juice for Jelly

My friend, Reva, texted me saying she has “a butt load of grapes” that she picked and asked if I’d like them. ROFL! But of course!

I would say there was about 5 quarts of grapes, once I picked them off the stems. When I left this morning for work I had 2.5 quarts of juice and it was still draining…so I may have another pint.

Two quarts of juice (as of last night).  Had a pint this morning, and it's still draining when I left.
