I have a small vineyard in my back yard, 8 Zin, 2 Cab, and 1 Merlot. My original plan was to make my own wine, but I had a job change, in which my salary did to.. I am reaching out to anyone who has a great recipe for Cabernet and Zinfandel preserves. Your help would be greatly appreciated....Thank you Chefs...

The Ball Blue Book has several grape preserve recipes, ranging from jams to jellies.

Personally, if I were looking to put them up, I would go with jelly, as it better preserves the unique flavors of each grape, whereas the sugar content of jam tends to hide the subtle flavors.

BBB also has a recipe for a Green Grape Marmalade. I've never made it, but it sounds intriguing. And could be a way of using them up if you have an overabundance of unripe grapes.
