Concord Grape Pie

DSC_0477

I bet you’ve never heard of a concord grape pie. I hadn’t either until I married my husband. This recipe is from his aunt and I’m not kidding you it’s the best pie ever. Concord grapes are such a unique flavor. They are only in season for a very short period of time, about one month (I’m not kidding you) in September. I have only found them in Whole Foods near me, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find them at your local farmer’s market or another grocery chain. The good thing is the filling for this pie freezes beautifully. That is how I get to enjoy this pie year round :) You can use a store bought crust, but if you’re feeling adventurous try this Best Pie Crust Recipe, it works every time.

Wash the conord grapes and remove the skins by pinching at end ooposite stem.  Set the skins in one bowl (reserve for later) and add the pulp to a small saucepan.

Place pulp in saucepan and bring to a boil.  Cook until pulp is soft, about 10 minutes.  Put through a strainer or food mill while hot to remove any seeds.  Discard the seeds.

Mix strained pulp with reserved skins.  Stir in sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt.  Pour this into the pie crust and top with the Oat Streusel.

For the Oat Streusel: Combine the oats, brown sugar and flour.  Cut in butter to distribute evenly.  Sprinkle the oat streusel over the pie and bake for 35 -40 minutes at 425 or until center of pie is bubbling slightly.
