DIRECTIONS

  • To cook grapes: Gather before seeds harden and grapes are developed. A little larger size than gooseberries. Wash and pull off stems and measure. Use 2 cups of grapes, 1/4 cups water and 1 tsp baking soda. Boil, stir and mash as they cook. (In Texas we have the wild grapes-I have not tried this yet- I am going to try it w/store bought green grapes.).
  • Combine the cooked grapes with all other ingredients, pour into a pie crust and top with remaining crust sealing edges. Make slits in the top crust for vents. Sprinkle w/a wee bit of cinnamon and sugar.
  • You may have to use a crust guard or foil over the edges of the pie the first half of baking to prevent browning to fast.
  • Mrs. Dowda notes that this is a fast seller at the church bazaars.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 25 min more or until browned.
