WENT TO THE GRAPE FESTIVAL AND I WANTED TO GET SOME CONCORD GRAPES TO MAKE THE FAMOUS PIES.
''IT IS STILL TOO EARLY FOR THE CONCORD GRAPES THIS YEAR'', THEY SAID.
BUT WE DO HAVE SOME GRAPES TO SELL..THEY (the people selling them) TOLD EVERYONE THE GRAPES THEY WERE SELLING WERE ''SEEDLESS''.

I EVEN ASKED HER, ''ARE YOU SURE BECAUSE I AM MAKING GRAPE PIES OUT OF THESE''; SHE ASSURED ME THEY WERE AND WOULD BE GREAT TO USE SINCE I WOULD 'NOT' HAVE TO REMOVE SEEDS..RIGHT!!!...NOTTA!!!

I'M SURE GLAD I CHECK THEM BEFORE STARTING MY PIE BAKING.

EVEN THOUGH THE SEED WERE MUCH SMALLER (than in the concords), THEY WERE STILL LITTLE 'HARD' SEEDS.

PEOPLE DO EAT THESE GRAPES WO REMOVING THE SEEDS, BUT..IF YOU ARE A PERSON WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH SEEDS, THEN THEY SHOULD NOT BE TOLD THAT THEY ARE SEEDLESS.
JUST BE HONEST, SAY ''THEY ARE SMALL AND YOU CAN EAT THEM, IF YOU HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH SEEDS''.

WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WITH DIVERTICULITIS???
THEY WOULD BE IN BAD TROUBLE IF THEY ATE THEM WO KNOWING THEY WERE EATING SEEDS.

PEOPLE JUST NEED TO BE CAREFUL AND NOT 'JUST TAKE SOMEONES WORD AS GOSPEL'
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ANYWAY, TO GET BACK TO MY PIES.

I STOOD IN MY KITCHEN CUTTING EACH AND EVERY GRAPE OPEN AND REMOVING ALL SEEDS UNTIL I HAD 4 1/2 CUPS, (I FIGURED SINCE I WANTED TO USE THE PULP IT WOULD BE EASIER THAN TRYING TO PEEL THEM.
I DIDN'T WANT COOK TO SOFT STATE AND RUN THEM THRU A SIV TO REMOVE SEEDS AND THEN ADD THE PULP BACK IN)....I JUST WANTED TO KEEP THE
GRAPE HALVES AND PULP INTACT.
SOOO, AFTER REMOVING ALL SEEDS FROM THE GRAPES...THIS IS WHAT I DID.
