Tea Time Thursday Recipe: Streusel Concord Grape Pie
In celebration of autumn in the Midwest, I made a Streusel Concord Grape Pie. It bubbled over a bit this time so might not look beautiful in my picture but it was very tasty. It is time consuming recipe to prepare but we think it is worth it to have this annual treat.
Streusel Concord Grape Pie
4 1/2 cups concord grapes
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp salt
Combine 1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
Cut in 1/4 cup butter to distribute evenly.
Wash grapes and remove skins by pinching at the end opposite the stem. Reserve the skins. (I put the skins in a little food chopper so they are chopped up more finely and don't get tough when baked.)
Place pulp in saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook a few minutes until pulp is soft. Put through a strainer or food mill, while pulp is hot, to remove seeds.
Mix strained pulp with skins. Stir in sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt. Place grape mixture in pastry lined pie pan. Sprinkle on oat streusel.
Pie may also be made with this filling and a double crust instead of the streusel.
Bake at 425 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.
