Concord Grape Mini Pies
I used the last of the Concord grapes to make mini-pies. As I've made them before, you can find the recipe HERE. The one thing I've learned since that post is that Concords don't work well in a food mill. The seeds still break off into tiny shards and you end up with grit in your puree. Better to either squeeze the seeds out by hand, or push it through a sieve with a wooden spoon. Yes, it is more work, but I really find it worth the bother to avoid the grittiness.
So what do you think of my improvised covered cake plate? The picture is pretty bad, but it is a large Pyrex glass bowl inverted on a plate. Genius, I know. And my parents said I was a waste of an education!
