I bet you're wondering what I did with all the apple peels when I made my pie. Or maybe not.
Nevertheless, it's an interesting story. I didn't throw them away or compost them. I saved them. To make syrup!
Oh, this is such a yummy recipe. Make it with any amount of peels and try it with pancakes.
Apple Peel Syrup
1/4 cup vinegar
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
3 cups water
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup cold water
4 Tablespoons butter
Cut the apple peels into small bits and store in vinegar until ready to use.
Combine peels, vinegar, sugar, cinnamon, and 3 cups water in a heavy nonreactive saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved and peels are tender.
Mix cornstarch with water and add to syrup. Stir constantly until syrup thickens and turns clear.
Remove from heat, add butter, and stir until melted.
