Grape Conserve

So what makes a conserve different than a jam or jelly?  The addition of nuts.  It is normally very thick and chunky.  Not to mention delicious.


7 pound basket of grapes (take out seeds)

4 pounds sugar

1 pound seeded raisins

$.25 worth of walnut meats (more the merrier)*

Cook until thick.  Burns very quickly.  Sweeten more if necessary.

*According to prices that were advertised in The Daily Record [Morris County New Jersey], December 15-25, 1910, one pound of walnuts was $.18.  I am thinking that this would require 1 lb to 1 1/2 lbs of walnuts.
