Moskonfyt

Grape must, used to make moskonfyt 

Moskonfyt or grape must jam is a traditional South African product. It dates back to the early days of the old Cape when they first started producing grapes in the 1600’s. Grape must is the mixture of pressed grape juice, skins seeds and pulp. This mixture is reduced down until it has the consistency of a light syrup and is dark amber in colour. If the colour is too dark the grape flavour is lost.

Moskonfyt is not readily available in supermarkets and is quite difficult to get hold of. At this time, I know of the following places that sell it.
