Ingredients Needed to Make Popsicles from Grapes

How to Make Concord Grape Juice

The simplest method for making juice from Concord grapes is to use a juicer. I like this juicer because it makes quick work of everything I attempt to juice and it is really easy to clean.

Don’t have a juicer?

No worries, you can also blend Concord grapes to make grape juice but I would recommend using a high-speed blender such as the blender I use because there are seeds in Concord Grapes.

You will need to make sure that the blender is actually breaking these down otherwise you will have a surprise in your juice.

Keep in mind that this method will also create a bit of a different texture than juicing, you will have some skins which give the popsicles a bit more of a natural feel.

However, if you prefer a smoother and more uniform texture, you can strain the puree before pouring it into the popsicle molds to remove any larger bits of skin. This will result in a more traditional popsicle consistency while still maintaining the natural flavors.

You could also just pick up a bottle of this grape juice to really simplify the process.
