I grew up in Western New York - the concord grape capital - and each fall at the Grape Festival you could always find grape pie. I always found it to be a bit sweet for my taste - but definitely distinctive in flavor! If you have some concord grapes, and you can keep yourself from eating them fresh, a grape pie would definitely be something different to try!

Here are a couple links to recipes that looked good:

The two kinds of grape pie I know are the Concord grape pie that There'sAlwaysPie writes about and green grape pie, which is an old-fashioned one, made from small, unripe grapes. Here's a link for one http://cookingupastory...
I'd agree that Concord grapes make a very sweet pie. Green grape pie is a little more wine-y.

I'll be picking lots of Concord grapes in a week or two. I've already made jelly, so I will probably make a grape conserve (from an old Fannie Farmer edition) out of the rest. Thinking of using that as a filling for hand pies...

This isn't a grape pie, but it is a delicious grape focaccia. Inspired by Daniel Leader.
