Recipe by cando

I had an overabundance of grapes a couple years back. I had no idea of what to do with them all. I had already made 70 jars of grape jam. I stumbled on this pie in the Best of Amish Cooking by Phyllis Pellman Good and combined it with a recipe I found on that was submitted by Terri. This is what I came up with.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stem grapes, wash, drain and squeeze from skins. Chop skins and set aside. Simmer pulp for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately put through a food press or strainer to separate seeds. Discard seeds.
  2. Stir pulp and skins together. Blend in sugar ¼ cup flour, tapioca, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon butter.
  3. Roll out pie dough to fit 9 inch pie pan and place in pan. Spoon grape mixture into pie shell.
  4. Combine topping ingredients until it resembles a coarse crumble. Sprinkle over pie. Bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce to 350 degrees F and bake an additional 30 minutes.
