Bountiful Harvest

We have way too may grapes for just making jam this year and I haven't figured out how to make wine so I tried this recipe for Grape Ketchup which tastes more like a BBQ sauce to me...pretty good.  It's in one of her cookbooks but she also has it at the link above on her website.  I own both her cookbooks and I think they are great for small batch variety for our family of three. 
The other jars are a pickled banana pepper recipe in one of her cookbooks, they are supposed to sit 48 hours, so I can't comment on taste for them yet.
We are doing really well in the cantaloupe department also this year!!
I did get some sewing done last night but it is secret sewing that can't be shown until later in September, so no peeks today!
Have a great Sunday :)

Hmmm grape ketchup? I have been working on green beans- 21 quarts so far and spaghetti sauce. I need to cook it down some more once I got all my tomatoes blanched. Are your banana peppers pickled?
