Concord Grape Streusel by cucinagirl


for the filling
2 cups concord grapes, washed and de-stemmed 
2 Tbsp flour 
1 teaspoon lemon juice 
pinch of salt

for the streusel:
1/2 cup oats 
1/2 cup brown sugar 
1/4 cup flour 
1/4 cup butter

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Remove the skins from the grapes by pinching the end opposite the stem.  Set skins aside.

In a small saucepan, bring grape pulp to a boil.  Cook for about 3 minutes, until the pulp is soft.  While it is still hot, press pulp through a fine mesh sieve with a spatula (or run through a food mill) to remove the seeds. 
In a medium bowl, combine pulp with grape skins,  sugar, flour, lemon juice, and salt.  Set aside.

For the streusel, combine the first three ingredients.  Then cut in the butter with a pastry cutter until it is evenly distributed.  Press a little more than half the streusel into the bottom of a small baking dish. (Mine was a 9"x6" oval.) Pour filling over the crust and sprinkle remaining streusel  evenly over the top. 

Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until filling is bubbly and topping is melted. Serve warm or room temperature.  Goes well with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and even for breakfast with coffee.
