Black Grapes are highly valued for their nutritional value.Rich in minerals,calcium and vitamin c this fruit is ideal to make a squash to relish in the summer heat.....add lots of crushed ice and some soda water it makes a nice fizzy drink...add a scoop of vanilla icecream and the kids will love it...the color too is very attractive.........
1 kg.............................black grapes
2 kg ………………....sugar
1 liter ………………...water
50 grams………….…citric acid
½ tsp………………....grape essence

Soak the grapes for a few hours, keep changing the water every few hours.
This helps in removing the toxins.
