Concord Grape Hull Pie

We’ve been trying to grow grapes, mostly concord, for years up here on our mountainside, but frost always came before most of the fruit ripened. Until last year. Hallelujah, we finally harvested enough grapes that even after we’d gotten our fill of straight-from-the-vine-into-our-mouths concord deliciousness, we still had enough grapes to make this wonderful pie.

My grandmother introduced me to the delicacy of grape hull pie many moons ago. For years, I remembered it with mouth-watering nostalgia, but I had no recipe to satisfy my salivary glands. Then one day, like magic, a reader-submitted recipe appeared in my local newspaper. As usual, I made a few tweaks. Here’s my version, straight from our garden. This recipe will make one deep-dish pie or two regular sized pies.
