I know it sounds kinda strange, but I will make a pie out of just about anything! Although not common, grapes are a great addition to pies. This pie was a big hit. Enjoy... :)
Fresh Thompson Seedless Grapes getting ready for pie...
Simmering with just enough water to keep from scorching. The rest is simply lime juice, a bit of brown sugar, and lime zest!
I added about a tablespoon of tapioca starch in a slurry to thicken and add sheen! :)
I poured the reduced filling into the pie pan to ensure that I have the right volume...
Roll out and prepare the unbaked pie crust. Here's a link to my pie crust recipe...
Fill it up! Add a bit of fresh lime zest for extra kick! :)
Time for the crumb topping. Fresh chopped dates, walnuts, oats, flour, date syrup, brown sugar, and chilled butter in equal parts...
Combine the topping ingredients with a pastry blender or your stand mixer with the paddle attachment (my favorite way).
Ready to bake at 325 degrees for about an hour or so... :)
You gotta be quick around here! :)
I have been baking breads, pies, cakes, and other treats ever since I was old enough to turn on the oven by myself. Although baking is my first love, I'm pretty good at the other stuff too! Over the years I have prepared everything from a pot of beans, to a whole roasted pig over an open fire!
