Saw wasps enter my house, it was because the grapes were ready and they were having them.
So i decided to make juice for me.
Found out it was a piece of cake.
Pick them, wash them, mash them with potato masher, squish everything with "clean" hands, throw in muslin, squeeze out sap, put in cooler.
I don't cook it, is that dangerous with flies and wasps sitting on them? Or is that secretly good for my resistance to bacteria.Like to think so, but maybe somebody wants to share horror stories about uncooked fruit.
Going to see if the chickens like the seeds and pulp.

I use a juicer. When the grapes are ready it smells like grape candy out there. And yes, the wasps start buzzing around sucking the juice from the grapes.

If you're drinking the juice fresh it shouldn't be a problem.

Nice Lauren.My grapes got pips in, i'm afraid the juicer will make the juice taste weird.

Not necessarily. I use a steam juicer and I haven't noticed a difference. The kind that grinds up the fruit might be a problem.
