Frugal Living Tip - Use Those Apple Peels!

Don't throw them away! Here are a few ideas to use those apple peels.

They will make a yummy & quick dessert. Sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar and bake on low until crispy.

Here's an old time favorite to try...

Apple Peel Jelly

Place apple peels, lightly packed, into a 4.5 qt. pot with 5 cups of water. There should be about 3-4 inches of peels in the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and boil for 15 minutes, stirring as little as possible. Remove from heat, put the lid on the pot, and allow to stand overnight. (Optional, add a cinnamon stick when you let it sit overnight.) Strain the liquid into a measuring cup, and make certain you have 5 cups. Return to the pot. Gradually dissolve 1 box of pectin into the liquid and bring to a full rolling boil, over high heat. Add 7 cups of sugar (all at once), stirring to dissolve. Return to boiling, and boil hard for 1 minute. Remove from heat, skim foam if necessary, and can into ½ pt. jelly jars. Process in a hot water bath for 10 minutes.

Or try making some Apple syrup!

Serve it in place of maple syrup with pancakes, oatmeal, or over warm baked apples.

2 cups firmly packed apple peels
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 cups water

Bring apple peels, brown sugar, and water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute or until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to low, and cook 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, and cool completely (about 1 hour). Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a large bowl; discard apple peels. Pour syrup into glass jars. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
