Never heard of such a thing. Can you make sea wine?

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Sea Grape wine....I'll look into it STAT, Steve!!

The sea grapes are full of fruit here in SWFL too. I know you can make sea grape jelly although I've never tasted it myself. Florida Cracker old-timers are known for being pretty resourceful so I wouldn't doubt that there is a recipe for sea grape wine out there (for medicinal purposes of course).

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Medicinal...of course.

We have plenty of sea grapes here now, but I have never had sea grape jelly or wine. I may need to give both recipes a try.
Lovely arrangement Linda!

i have never made sea grape jelly,
but i bet it is good.
when i was a little kid we used to eat them when they were ripe....without
our parents knowledge.
...we had just moved to fla and they knew
'sea grapes' from shnee grapes!!!

I have never heard of that! Sounds yummy! I have that cookbook Plenty but haven't made anything from it. Any suggestions?

Love the surfboard in the background. It must be hard to think of fall and winter in sunny Florida! You have the most lush pickings for your arrangements right outside your door in your beautiful garden. Lucky girl!

You are the one! I'm sitting here with the hub who is asking if there is such a thing as sea grape jelly...ok, I'll go look it up :)

becky said...

Yep, lots of recipes for sea grape jelly out there. For every cup of sea grape juice, you'll need a cup of sugar plus 1/3 cup of LIME JUICE!!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Lime...Perfect.

I planted a line of them 12 years ago to block out some obnoxious neighbours. They are huge and I love to eat them fresh out of hand whenever I pass by on my drive mower. Some people make a wine but I have never heard of the jelly.

Linda Lou said...

Sea grapes-interesting, not here in San Diego, just stopping by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Karen Albert said...

Linda,
A gorgeous arrangement! Sea grapes, not here in Kansas City; although the jelly and maybe wine sounds good!
