If you own a juicer, you can make apple juice and have plently of leftover scraps, called pomace
. You can compost it
, turn it into garbage enzyme
, or throw it out. Before you do, consider this instructable. It will shows you how to extract pectin for jam and jelly making using a method only slightly different from NoFiller's Pectin from Scratch
instructable. This pectin has a neutral flavor since there is only residual apple juice in the process. Also, you'll be able to use the pomice to make apple sauce. It's flavor isn't as good as Poppa Chubby's Home Made Applesauce
, it's bland actually, but it's a good source of fiber. Lastly, consider eating the apple whole instead, core included, it's quicker.
Pictured is a jelly blob made by adding lemon juice and denatured alcohol to the pectin.
