2 cups firmly packed apple peels
2 cups firmly packed light brown sugar
2 cups water
How to Make It
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.
Delicious and really good on pancakes! Fast and easy and uses those peels you were going to throw away anyway! If I could figure out a way to thicken it up some it would make a nice addition to a holiday gift basket in a pretty, decorative bottle. I'm making apple butter today and using the peels for the syrup!
