Finger Lakes Concord Grape Pie

I found this recipe and wanted to share it with you. In the Finger Lakes region of New York, grapes are grown by the tens of thousands for wines and baked goods. People come from all over New York State and from other states as well to this area in the fall for grape pies! Hope you enjoy it. The pie filling can also be canned. You could also make a batch of pies and freeze them before baking.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 6-8

Cook Time: 40 minutes  



4 cups Concord grapes
1 cup sugar
? teaspoon salt
2½ tablespoons tapioca
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature


To make the filling, slip the skins off the grapes and reserve them. Put the grape pulp in a saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat just until soft enough to release the seeds, about 8 minutes. Push the grape pulp through a wire-mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Combine the pulp in a bowl with the reserved grape skins.

***This recipe could be canned instead of making a pie right away. Follow the directions for your canner for processing in the water bath.

Use your favorite double crust recipe or you can use an oatmeal or crumble crust topping.

Roll out each ball of dough on a well-floured board until they are 10 to 11 inches in diameter. Line the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan with a round of dough. Preheat the over to 450ºF. Mix the sugar, salt, and tapioca together in a bowl and spread about half of the mixture with the grapes and add the lemon juice. Pour the pie filling into the crust and dot with butter. Cover with the top crust and crimp the edges to seal. Bake for 10 minutes and then lower the temperature to 350ºF and bake for another 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes before serving. If not serving immediately, warm the pie in an oven set on the lowest temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
