285. My dear friend Darlene was the first to introduce me to Concord Grape Pie. Every year, in the fall, she would collect concord grapes from her families grape vines and make us a perfect grape pie. At first we had never heard of such a pie till we tried it. It was fantastic!
Her pies were so perfect, her niece requested that her Aunt Darlene bake grape pie for her wedding in place of a wedding cake. Now that's the sign of a delicious dessert!
She taught me her recipe, of course it could never match Darlene's pie, but here is my version.
Concord Grape Pie
pie dough for a two crust pie
4 cups fresh concord grapes
2 cups sugar
4 Tablespoons tapioca
Roll out the bottom crust and place in pie plate.
