We had 2 or 3 grapevines on our property when I was growing up in New Jersey. I love the ripe grapes, with their sweetness and fruit aroma, and I soon began putting them into pies.

Like a blueberry pie, this is juicy and fragrant from cinnamon. Seeding the Concords takes a little time, but their deep, winy flavor is worth it!
