Easy Grape Jam with Only 2 Ingredients

Easy Grape Jam

Making jam does not have to be difficult. You don’t need to make a dozen jars or buy special equipment. Fruit, sugar and basic kitchen supplies are all that’s needed.

Easy Grape Jam


2 cups grapes, halved (I used Black Muscato Grapes)

1 1/2 cups sugar


Combine grapes and sugar in pan and turn the stove’s heat setting to high. Stir frequently to release the juices and to keep it from sticking.

When sugar has dissolved in the grape juice, remove from heat. Blend the mixture for a couple of minutes with an immersion blender. I like leaving chunks in mine. If you like it smoother, blend longer.

Return pan to stove and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally to keep it from sticking. Jam will be ready in about 5 minutes.

When you pour the jam off of the spoon, it will form drops instead of being a steady stream. That’s the sign that it’s ready. It will still look like a liquid, but will thicken as it cools.

    Hi Nishi – Not positive, but should be fresh for a long time.

    Hi! I doubled the recipe because my daughter had brought grapes home & they would have gone bad if I let them sit any longer. I had to cook it quite a bit longer to achieve the consistency described in the recipe. Be very careful about following the recipe!

    Great that you had so many grapes, Jennifer!

    If you double the recipe, the timing needs to be increased as well.
