I love apples! They are the perfect snack. And my daughter will agree, but she absolutely will not eat her apple unless it is peeled and sliced. I’m sure there are a lot of you who feel my pain. I don’t mind doing it, but I do wind up with a lot of apple scraps over time. (BTW, this is my favorite tool for peeling, coring and slicing apples in bulk. It makes such quick work without any waste!)

I hated the idea of throwing these scraps away, so I went on the hunt to find alternative uses for them. Of course you can throw the peels and cores in your compost, but I was looking for something more.

If you’re peeling apples every once in a while, place the peels in a freezer bag and keep in your freezer until you have enough for a full recipe. I love to stock up on apples in the fall because they are such a good price. Depending on how I use them, whether prepping apple pie filling or making apple butter, wind up with a LOT of scraps. (PS – I can’t wait to jump into canning with all of you!)

I’ve compiled 10 recipes for bringing new life to those apple scraps. Do you have any other suggestions? I would love to hear them. Just comment below!
