Are There Any Good Uses for Apple Peels?

Good Questions

Q: This is a question my Dad asked me and I didn't know a good answer so I will turn it over to The Kitchn community for help. My dad regularly makes apple sauce and he uses an apple corer and peeler for a lot of apples. He is left with tons and tons of apple skin strings (we call it apple spaghetti).

Are there any good uses for the skin? In particular, are there any healthy uses?
