Does the gape seed, skin and pulp have any redeeming qualities for fertilizer or other use or should it just be discarded in the trash?

I made a zin and once I removed the skins/seeds I froze them. I'm thinking of using them in a sour ale, but I'm sure other ales could benefit from a grape/wine influence.

It also has redeeming value in the making of a second wine.

Save the nuts to make a fiber rich, crunchy breakfast cereal.
