Who knows how to make grape pie?

Up until I met my husband, I'd never heard of grape pie, but it's apparently a big thing where he grew up.
I've found several recipes and they all call for concord grapes. Knowing next to nothing about grapes...am I likely to get a good result substituting regular old seedless red grapes? I understand that the taste may vary, but I can't find concord grapes around here.

Thanks!

  • Concord grapes a way different than table (regular) grapes. So no, I highly doubt you'd get the same result. A concord's skin is a lot thicker, the grape is a lot smaller, the pulp is slimier...I wouldn't risk it.

  • Get online and see if you can get some shipped to you or maybe Freshmarket has some or know where you can find them. Maybe someplace has them frozen. I know fresh is best but sometimes you have to improvise.
