Concord Grape Pie

  • 5 1/2 cups fresh Concord grapes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sifted flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoon butter or margarine
  1. Wash grapes; drain. Remove skin from each grape; set skins aside.
  2. Bring grape pulp to a boil, stirring. Boil 2 minutes. Press pulp through a seive to remove seeds.
  3. Combine sugar, flour, salt and peels. Mix with grape skins and pulp.
  4. Put mixture into a pastry lined 9-inch pie plate. Dot with butter.
  5. Put on a top crust with slits near center. Bake 40-45 minutes at 425┬║.
  • To freeze for future, simmer the mixture from (3) for about 15 minutes, and then freeze.
  • Good with vanilla┬á ice cream — some call that a requirement.
  • 2016 update with Ruth helping Nancy — she never used the citrus peel or dotted with butter.
  • Your favorite pie crust is fine. Here’s the crust we use.

    Hannah — if you have a different recipe for the Concord Grape Pie, please do share! I didn’t find one in Grandma’s box, but this is the one Mother’s been using for decades.

    We’ve now had two years of celebrating Cathy’s birthday (9/30) and Ruth’s birthday (9/20) with takeout lobster meals from St. Paul’s Church, LobsterFestCary.org, and grape pie with grapes Steve and Nancy brought down from a September trip to NY. Here’s hoping for a repeat in 2017!
