Concord Grape Pie

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. This latest version of my original recipe uses red seedless and concord grapes; combining 2 varieties of grapes gives the pie depth and juiciness, each complementing the other's flavor and color. 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! Concord grapes are normally available mainly in September and October.

Perfectly Flaky Pie Crust

During my early days as a pastry chef, the perfect piecrust seemed to elude me. When I complained to my grandmother, she offered me her prized recipe, which had served her well over a lifetime of baking. it is always flaky and tender and I've been using it ever since. A touch of vinegar helps prevent the formation of the gluten, which toughens the piecrust. This recipe makes four 9 in crusts and extras freeze beautifully!
