Default Calories and Fiber in an apple peel

So I made apple pie for all my friends tonight, which involved cutting and peeling 6 apples. Because I know the peel has lots of good stuff in it and I'm trying to boost my fiber intake I ate the peels/apple skins while I was baking. I'm just curious if anyone knows how many calories and more importantly how many grams of fiber are in the peel of one medium apple?

Thank you!
Dee

The nutrition data website (http://www.nutritiondata.com/) pulls info from the USDA database. It says:

110g of peeled apple is 53 cals, 1g of fiber
120g of unpeeled apple is 65 cals, 3g of fiber
