Concord Grape Pie I
Wow! I grew up with grape pie, but almost no one I know has ever heard of it. I was surprised to find a recipe for it here! It is a lot of work. Try putting up a dozen jars of pie takes a whole day. However, there is a modern solution! This year we found a seedless version of the Concord grape. I believe it's called Coronation? Anyway, it cuts the prep time in half and yields a pie that is just as tasty. In my version I found that 3-1/2 cups of grapes made ample filling. I wouldn't recomend 5 cups unless you have a deep dish. I cut the sugar back to a single cup but prefer a crumb topping to a double-crust. It's a combination of brown sugar, butter and flour.

Apple Strudel Muffins
Very tasty! Definitely the best apple-cinnamon muffin I've tried, and my family agreed. The only thing I did differently was added about 1/3 cup of oat bran soaked in 1/3 cup of milk to the mix to add a little more texture and "health benefit". Also added a healthy dash of cinnamon directly to the batter. Can never have too much cinnamon! Excellent.
