Concord Grape Juice

  • 6 kg / 13 lb 3.64 oz Concord grapes
  • 400 g / 14.11 oz water

Sorbet Base

  • 2.8 kg / 6 lb 2.77 oz / 56% Concord Grape Juice

  1. For the Concord Grape Juice: Separate the grapes from the stems.
  2. Place the grapes in a pot and add the water; cook until the grapes burst and release their juice.
  3. Push the grapes through a conical strainer so as to obtain as much liquid and pulp as possible while leaving the seeds and skin in the china cap.
  4. For the Sorbet Base: Make the sorbet base according to the Classic Sorbet Method.
  5. Pacotize or churn to the desired consistency. If using a Pacojet, freeze the base in a beaker until hardened, and then pacotize.
  6. Harden for at least 2 hours and up to 4 hours. Reserve until needed.
