Grape Catsup


4 pounds Concord grapes
2 pounds granulated sugar
2 cups white or cider vinegar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground allspice
2 teaspoons ground cloves


Combine ingredients in a large (4- to 5-quart) heavy-bottomed pot over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and gently simmer until grapes cook down and juice thickens, about 1 hour 45 minutes. Pass through a strainer to remove seeds and skins. Pour catsup into sterilized jars and process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water bath.
