This is a recipe I got from my favorite blogger Suzanne McMinn (yes, the romance novelist.) It is fantastic. I switched it up a little because of what I had on hand and nutrition issues... Here is the original recipe: http://chickensintheroad.com/farm-bell-recipes/concord-grape-pie/

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pie crust (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup fresh grapes (I used green, Ms. McMinn uses concord. Make sure they are seeded)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, heaping
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 -3 tablespoons sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mash grapes (in skins) with water.
  3. In a separate bowl mix sugar, butter, cornstarch, and 3 egg yolks.
  4. Stir in mashed grapes.
  5. Pour custard into pie crust.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes or until custard is firm.
  7. Beat up a meringue with 3 egg whites and remaining sugar. Top cooked pie with meringue and bake for another 15-20 minutes.
  8. Chill until room temperature and serve.
