Valentine’s Grape Pie

valentine grape pie

I know…Valentine’s Day is over. Anyhow I post here homemade Valentine’s grape pie created by me. I made this grape pie as Valentine’s day  present for my husband. It took a long time for me to make this pie, because of the love-form on top of the pie, I’ve made it with my hand :-). And also, I had to seeded the grape first, before blend it. It would be good idea when you use seedless grape. I also didn’t peel the skin of the grape (it costs also time). Overall,  at the end we’re happy, my husband was happy to eat it, and I was happy that the pie taste really good. 

This recipe inspired by Saveur.Com with Concord Grape Pie.
