As you all know by now, I’ve had a huge amount of pears and apples since our fruit picking adventure in Julian 10 days ago. Since then I’ve been cooking apple and pear sauce, dried apples and pears and cooked with apples. Peeling and coring all those fruits made me realized how much I throw away and wondered if there was anyway to use it.
10 cups or apples or pear or both peels and cores
1 lemon, washed and cut in half
10 cups water
1/2 cup sugar (optional)
Place everything in a large pot and bring to boil. Simmer for 30 minutes. Let it sit over night. Strain and discard fruit. The drink in general taste great as it but if you want it sweeter add 1/2 cup sugar and stir until dissolved. Pour into clean bottles and place in freezer.
