I have been using up the apples I have left with various recipes – pie and apple sauce as of lately. Rather than tossing all the yummy peels, I put them all into a large bowl, toss with spices and bake to make a crunchy tasty snack.
I have an apple pie and 3 jars of applesauce from the apples that belong to these peels. Obviously, I was working with a large quantity of apples. It is easy to adapt and change this recipe in accordance to the number of apples and your own taste buds. I had to pay attention as I made the apple peels today, as I usually do not measure anything when making this snack.
Baked Apple Peels with Almonds
1. Place 3 cups apple peels into a large bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cardamon, 1/4 cup sugar, and 2 oz of sliced almonds. Toss to coat evenly.
2. Lined a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Spread apple peels evenly in pan. Baked in a 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until slightly browned. Stir half way through baking.
3. Remove from oven, allow to cool before serving. Store in the fridge in an airtight container or freeze to save even longer.
