Red Grape Pie

Red Grape Pie came about because its yummy and those grapes needed to be used up. You see somehow huge awesome seeded grapes came into the house.. and there they sat.. because opps seeded.

So they were not getting eaten and I happened to have “just” enough left over pie dough in the fridge that I wanted to use up.. so Red Grape Pie was calling..

Red Grape Pie

  • 1 bag of grapes (split in half and seeded out if required)
  • half a cup of sugar
  • a quarter cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 1/2 tsp of nutmeg
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. of butter into smaller pats

Rinse your grapes and cut in half if big or leave whole if small enough, if you like a wetter pie filling, you can reduce your flour to 2 Table Spoon’s The way its made, the pie holds together but eat grape half bursts with juice as you eat it, this keeps a crispy crust, the wonderful spicy flavour in the thicker filling and the bite of juice in the grape..

Mix your sugar, flour, salt and spices together in a bowl, then pour of the cut grapes and mix together and place in your bottom prepared with pie dough pie plate, add your pats of butter over the top of the pie, then top with crust or make a lattice pattern.

Enough pie dough for top and bottom

Bake at 350 in a pre-heated oven till golden and middle is bubbling.. about 45 min give or take. Can be served warm or cold, plain or with whipped cream or ice cream.

    Sounds very tasty, but I’d think you have to remove all those seeds first, and I’m as lazy as everybody else. Or, do they just bake away?

  2. This is a neat idea! sometimes I end up with “old” grapes sitting around. I’ll give this a try for sure πŸ™‚

    Just about anything can be made into a pie. πŸ™‚ … and all the rest can be made into a soup! πŸ˜€

  4. I’ve never made, or eaten grape pie. It looks great. What a great use for the grapes that no one was eating!
