  • 2 cups 100 % grape juice made with Concord grapes


  1. Pour grape juice into an 8x8-inch pan. Set in a level spot in the freezer.
  2. After about 1 1/2 hours, it should be partially frozen and somewhat solid around the edges. Pull it from the freezer. Use a fork to chop it up around the edges and run it through the center to break up the frozen sections into small ice crystals. Put it back in the freezer.
  3. After another 1.5 hours, it should be fully frozen. Remove it again and use the fork to break it completely into little ice crystals.
  4. Serve immediately or transfer to a covered container and store until ready to eat. You may need to break it up again with a fork when you pull it out to serve.
  5. Scoop into little bowls or cups and serve with small spoons.
