Concord grape seeds

The time is now for the concord grapes. But I am wondering about the seeds. I've deseeded them by hand before and it's really tedious. Have also tried putting them in the food mill, and they just crunch up with the bits going through the mill. Does heating the grape pulp soften the seeds and eliminate that problem? And is there any other way to do it? Thanks.

  1. Slip the skins off, then gently simmer the pulp; the seeds will kind of separate from the flesh at some point, and you can just press the juice and as much of the flesh as you can through a sieve with a rubber spatula, leaving the seeds in the sieve. Simmer the skins, too, then combine them with the flesh and juice and put in a cobbler or pie or whatever.
