Repost: Apple Skin Idea

Thank you, everyone, for continuing to come to our site!! Because of its popularity I decided to re-post this apple skin idea. Perfect for this time of year! Have a blessed day!!!

Today in our house we peeled and cored nine pounds of orchard fresh apples in order to make homemade apple sauce. I like to do this a couple times a year. I make the applesauce in a big pot and let it simmer for a long time. I add water to the apples in order to slowly boil them. This makes not only applesauce, but a nice pitcher of fresh apple cider too.

There were piles of apple peels left over. What to do? I thought of putting them into the compost bin, which would have been fine but instead I did a little google searching and found an interesting suggestion.

Here it is: Baked Cinnamon Apple Peels

1. Take the leftover peels and toss them into a bowl/bag.
2. Shake cinnamon and a bit of sugar over them.
3. Place onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 until crispy.
4. Eat warm or cold!

They are actually really good and my family devoured them. They taste like apple chips. They were a bit hard to get off of the pan. But, the pan rinsed clean after soaking in warm water for just a little bit.

So~ nine pounds of apples gave us TONS of applesauce, cider, and apple chips!

Another one you might want to try is the crispy cinnamon wedges (pictured below) that go GREAT with applesauce. 

You might also want to consider apple rings or apple fun shapes.

This is a great idea! My kids might actually eat apple skins with this recipe.

I guess you just have to make sure they aren't waxed, huh?
