Not only am I sharing the Syrup recipe with you guys today, I am also throwing in Banana Pancakes to enjoy along with it! Truly a perfect weekend breakfast.

Homemade Apple Syrup made completely with apple peel and cores

Last week I posted a recipe for Apple Chutney – Today I am presenting Apple Syrup made with all the apple peel and cores from the chutney making.
This is a great way to use the whole fruit and make two different delicious things happen in your kitchen at once.

Here are my recipes for Homemade Applesauce & Apple Cider

You can also pour the apple syrup over your yogurt and granola – use it for baking – glaze your turkey with it – Enjoy it in a cocktail…. The possibilities are endless, but one thing is for sure, that this syrup is delicious!
