Introduction:¬† This is a easy recipe for Concord Grape Pie. This pie used to¬†be very time consuming to prepare, as the skins and seeds had to be removed from the grapes. The grapes would have to be cooked and a pie crust would have to be made from scratch because in those days,¬†prepared pie crust were not available in grocery stores. My Grandmother labored to make this pie because everyone loved it. Thank goodness, in our time, we have bottled grape juice and can make this pie quick and easy.¬† Enjoy!!
