Ingredients

  • for the filling

  • 3-4

    cups concord grapes

  • 3

    cups peeled and sliced apples (about 3 medium-sized ones)

  • 1

    tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4

    cup sugar

  • pinch of nutmeg (optional)

  • for the crust

  • 1 1/2

    sticks cold unsalted butter, cubed

  • 2 1/4

    cups all-purpose flour

  • 1

    teaspoon salt

  • 2-3

    tablespoons cold water

Directions

Make the crust: Combine the flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, your fingers or a food processor, cut the butter into the flour. If using the food processor, pulse several few times until the pieces of butter are no larger than a pea. The mixture should resemble coarse crumbs. Add water one tablespoon at a time and stop when the dough is malleable enough to form a ball. (If using food processor, slowly add water one tablespoon at a time to the mixture while pulsing it just until a ball is formed). Break into two balls. Cover them with plastic wrap and chill at least 30 minutes. (Crust can be made several hours beforehand.) In a large bowl, combine the grapes and sliced apples with the sugar, lemon juice and optional nutmeg. Roll one pastry ball out and transfer to the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan. Fill with the fruit. Roll out top crust and, if desired, cut out (apple and grape-shaped!) designs. Crimp edges. (Optional: Brush top of pie with egg wash, milk or cream and/or sprinkle it with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
