Ingredients

1 pound dark purple seedless grapes, stems removed
12 ounces fresh blueberries
½ cup white grape juice
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¼ teaspoon salt
Small fresh mint leaves (optional)

PREPARATION
1. Rinse the fruit, then pat dry with paper towels.

2. Place fruit in a medium size saucepan over medium-high heat. Add grape juice and honey and bring the mixture to a boil.

3. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and allow to stand and cool for 10 minutes.
