Tart, pulpy, sweet — what a treat! These Niagara Cabernet Franc grapes were on sale for an unbelievable $0.99 a pound.  The recipe? Wash, pluck, enjoy!

(Or make the perfect pie filling by squeezing the pulpy insides of 2lb of grapes into a saucepan, setting the blue skins aside.  Bring to a boil until pulp is soft.  Strain to remove seeds.  Cool, then add 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tbsp lemon juice, and 2 tbsp tapioca.  Stir in skins and bake in pie shell as directed. Delicious!)
