Oh dear what to do with a bumper harvest?

It's been a pretty rubbish year for our vegetable patch and we have even resorted to the odd veg box which has been lovely.

But one crop which has been abundant is the grapes. We grow our vine purely for the shade it provides and the way it looks. The grapes usually consist of some very small, sparse bunches, however last year we had loads of bunches each made up of very small, extremely sharp grapes. This year though they're getting sweeter and bigger but are full of pips and we just have so many, at least 60 litres, it's such a shame to throw them away, and they look lovely, but can't think of anything to do with them, and they wouldn't make good wine.
