Muscadine Wines contain over 5 times more RESVERATROL than ordinary red wines. This is a delicious rich purple-red syrup to serve hot on pancakes or oatmeal. The recipe is a 50 year old family favorite from a local vineyard in continuous production for over 70 years. Grapes from this vineyard were used by Callaway Gardens for 19 years to make sauces, preserves and ice cream. This nutrient rich syrup can be also be served on yogurt. It's a favorite for Bluebird CSA members.


  1. 1 lb. muscadine grapes
  2. 1 lb. sugar
  3. 1 cup water


  1. Cook deseeded grapes in water slowly until hulls are tender about 15 minutes. (Can be cooked in a crockpot on high.)
  2. Strain juice.
  3. Add sugar to muscadine juice and cook to make a syrup with desired thickness. (will thicken as cools)
  4. Serve warm.
