Waste Not

If you are lucky enough to have a yard overgrown with Concord Grape Vines growing wild...here's a delicious use for all those grapes that's sure to get great feedback. Enjoy!

Fresh from the vines on my back fence. If you like your pie on the tart side...a few greenish grapes in the mix does wonders.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Quick-Cook Oats
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup (x2) Flour
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 2 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt

  • 1 cup White Sugar
You will need to first separate the skins from the grapes.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Once grapes have been rinsed thoroughly, squeeze the end of each grape (opposite the stem) to separate skins from pulp. Set skins aside. Place pulp in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook while stirring for 1 to 2 minutes. Remove and press through a strainer or food mill to remove all seeds.
  3. Once seedless, combine pulp, skins, white sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt in mixing bowl. Pour evenly into pastry shell.
  4. In another bowl combine quick oats, brown sugar and flour. Cut-in small tabs of butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle mix evenly over filling to create top crust.
  5. To prevent burnt crust, cover the edges of pastry around pie pan with tin foil. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes. Remove the tin foil and continue to bake for 20 minutes more or until center topping becomes golden brown. Cool before serving.

Ready to Serve

If you use too large a pie dish, the 9" crust will just barely be big enough. Smaller dishes work best if you are concerned with presentation. Serves best warm with Vanilla Ice-Cream!
