How to Cook with Tart & Seeded Concord Grapes - without making a jam?

Hi! I picked up a bunch of concord grapes at the farmer's market. They're beautiful - but a bit tart and with lots and lots of seeds. I'd like to use them, but I don't really use jelly and I'd prefer not to use a bunch of sugar to sweeten them. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

I have had them muddled with some cachaca and sugar and club soda as a twist on a caipirinha ...

You could cook them down with a little water and just a pinch or two of sugar, then strain out the skins and seeds and use the puree as a flavoring for soda water or cocktails -- it's a really nice way to mellow out the strong flavor of Concord grapes!

You could juice them in a steam juicer or pressure cooker...
