Maine Concord Grape Pie Recipe (8)

Cooking and baking wholesome dishes inspired by vintage regional cookbooks and handwritten recipe cards is relaxing and therapeutic for me. It’s also what helped facilitate losing 10% of my unwanted mid-life body weight in 2010. All of my old-fashioned recipes are made gluten-free without the use of artifice or gums, and many have been either inspired by or adapted from regional and vintage cook books in my personal collection. The sources, if any, are provided in each post.
