TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4-1/2 cups Concord grapes (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  • 1. Squeeze the end of each grape opposite the stem to separate skins from pulp. Set skins aside. Place pulp in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil and stir for 1 minute. Press through a strainer or food mill to remove seeds.
  • 2. In a large bowl, combine the pulp, skins, sugar, flour, lemon juice and salt; pour into pastry shell. In a small bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling.
  • 3. Cover edges of pastry with foil. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Remove foil; bake 20 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
