Have a Sweet, Southern Fall with Sweet Grown Alabama Muscadines
September 1, 2022
Did you know Alabama has its very own native grapes? Muscadines are a beloved treat for southerners each fall. Seasoned muscadine fans have been anxiously awaiting harvest to make their favorite muscadine jelly, wine or pie. For a little inspiration, check out this “Small Batch Scuppernong/Muscadine Grape Jelly” recipe from our friend Kathleen Phillips at GritsandGouda.com. If you’ve never tried this little fruit, there’s no better time to pick a gallon from the vine and taste this local goodness. In addition to baking, muscadines freeze well for year-round enjoyment! Just watch out for the seeds!
