Although preparing the grapes was time-intensive, this can't be avoided, and it was definitely worth it. This is SO delicious. I didn't have enough grapes for a whole pie, so I rolled the dough and cut it into small circles. I used these in a cupcake tin to make open topped-tarts. The 12 of them lasted about 1/2 hour once they cooled!
I followed this recipe to a "t". I found it was way too sour. It was quite time consuming and messy. I made sure that I put the pie on a cookie sheet first and I'm glad I did. The filling ran out all over the place. The smell was amazing, but the taste just didn't cut it!!!
I didn't have Concord grapes, but a very large container of dark seedless grapes that my DH bought at our warehouse club. There were more than we could east so I decided to make this pie. I cut each grape in half lengthwise and squeezed them as hard as I could into the pan, skins included. Then I followed the recipe as provided. The pie turned out delicious! I was surprised at the flavoring as it had almost a rhubarb hint. I had never heard of grape pie previously, but now I have a new recipe in my book!
This pie was superb. I was nervous about eating a pie made out of grapes...but I was pleasantly suprised. It was tart like a rhubarb pie. Loved it.
I made the filling into prepared tart shells instead of a pie and the flavour was wonderful. I am withholding one star because of preparation- separating the grapes and skins is time consuming and I became VERY frustrated separating the pulp from the seeds. I might have had exceptionally seedy grapes, but I was ready to give up when my husband suggested putting the pulp/seed mix into the lettuce spinner. Two rounds of that separated everything and I continued with the recipe.
So- fantastic result but some frustration getting there.
I can not tell you how many times I made this pie, and everytime I did everyone loved it! The removing of the seeds is a little time consuming, but you would have to do that no matter what. I would definitely reccommend this recipe!
I made this with grapes I acquired from a local winery. (acquired - haha!) and it was amazing... Watch your pie crust so you don't over bake it, will try this next time with a scratch pie crust and see if I like it even better...
Made this pie yesterday after returning from the N.Y. finger lakes--my wife loves it-she says it tastes like dark cherries--easiest pie I ever made--thank you
