I had always avoided making jelly before, because it seemed a waste to throw so much leftover fruit pulp away. However, since my grapes all have seeds (as do the blackberries), it turned out to be a lot simpler to just let them drain the juice out in a jelly bag than to run the whole batch through a food mill to get the seeds out. I saved the leftover mass of skins and pulp, and I'm attempting to make vinegar from it. We'll see how that goes.
I'm going to have to try to squeeze in the last bits of cleaning over the next two weeks whenever I have some spare time. That's going to be in shorter supply than usual, because they designated a bunch of overtime money to the budget and want to get it spent before the end of the fiscal year. I've been working an extra 4-6 hours per week because of that. It's certainly good money, but it takes away time from doing things around the house.
