Wild Grapes

When I was in Texas the wild grapes were ready to be picked so Ron, my brother in law Richard and I picked about 1/2 bushel of them.  I juiced them and canned it and now have the juice ready to make some wild grape jelly.  I will wait until the weather cools down to do it and do the things that can't wait.   I've never seen wild grapes and they were everywhere on the country roads; I found some growing in the trees too.  Gale and Richard had some growing in their front yard trees and I though it was so funny to have vines in the trees.  The grapes were large and the juice is very dark purple, almost black.
