Recipe Notes

My husband Tom and I love muscadines! Tom, a farmer, enjoys the growing process. What started as a two-row hobby has now grown into a 220-vine, you-pick operation. He also enjoys sharing the knowledge he has gained over the years with others. My pleasure comes from eating the muscadines, especially the black varieties. I also enjoy visiting with customers! Many have been coming for years and it is like seeing old friends. I am always happy to share jelly recipes. Muscadine Hull Jelly is Tom’s favorite.
