Anyone here have any experience in wild grape jelly being sold at a farmers market?
We have wild grapes, heart leaf peppervine, and virginia creeper here, not only in state, but on these 20 acres, so ID is of importance. And, I have been considering cultivating some of these wild grapes. They are quite small, but quite sweet and quite flavorful, and, my impression from eating some, would produce a fantastic jelly. Additionally, we are planning to sell some fruit and vegetables, jelly, and honey at the local farmers market (fruit jams, fruit jellies, honey, and baked goods are legal to sell here, even if made in a home kitchen).
A couple of questions come to mind, and I cannot seem to answer myself is, would something labeled "Wild Grape Jelly" be attractive to you? Would you be more inclined to try it or buy it over cultivated grape jelly? And, would you pay a small premium price for it (Perhaps a dollar a jar more?) since it is "natural" wild grape jelly? Being that they are wild grapes, they do not require the spraying regime that cultivated grapes do. If this was also advertised, would this increase the value of the product to you?
