Apple Cinnamon Syrup
We go through a lot of apples in our house. I have been making lots of apple/carrot juice lately. Since I hate to waste anything, I usually make apple cider vinegar with the cores. I have several containers so I tried making apple cinnamon syrup and it came out wonderful. I have already made it 3 times and we are almost done with the 2nd batch. It is very easy to make.
Take the cores and put them in a pot with water covering them. Then boil for 30 minutes, making sure water is covering them the whole time. Then strain and measure the liquid. Discard the cores. I usually end up with about 2 cups of liquid. I add 1 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. I boil it down until it gets the consistency that I like. We have used it on waffles, pancakes, steal cut oats and vanilla ice cream. Hubby said it tastes like apple pie.
What do you do with your apple cores?
