Here is a little known trick for cleaning aluminum pots and pans easily. If you fill the affected pan with water and leftover apple peels and bring it to a boil, cover it, reduce the heat and simmer it about 30 minutes, it will remove all the stains on the inside of the pot and bring back the natural sheen of the aluminum.
Alternatively, you could fill the pot with water and add 2 Tablespoons of cream of tartar, bring it to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes for the same effect.
I guess it’s just nice to know that the peelings are good for something!

Or, if the peels are from organic apples, you can use them to make homemade organic apple cider vinegar, which is incredibly healthy and has a myriad of different uses.
Here are a couple of sites with instructions to get you started:
