Meathead Goldwyn of the Huffington Post and the Purple Passion Concord Grape Pie

This is not only a great grape pie recipe but it also talks about vitis vinifera grapes and the vitis lambrusca grape varieties and why the latter varieties make a better pie. Click on the link to find out why.

Yum. I wonder if I can find those grapes here. I need to check. I have never heard of grape pie.

SkippyMom...you made me think of Welch's Grape Jelly Jam. I don't know if it is still on the shelves but that is from the Concord grape as well I believe.

We used to grow Concords in our back yard here in VA. [Dad made wine, grandma made jelly and the BEST freaking grape juice of all time from them. Wow. memories] But I have never seen them sold around here.

I wonder how my husband would feel about a mini vineyard in the backyard. hee
