Serves: 6
  • 2 lb apples, Granny Smith is perfect for this
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 whole allspice
  • 4 cloves
  • cup sugar (or to taste)
  • 8 cups water
  1. *Chop the apples coarsely and put in a heavy saucepan with cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and water. Bring to a boil; turn the heat to medium, and cook, partly covered, until the apples are very tender, about 30 - 40 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool.
  2. *Fish out the spices and process apples and water in the blender until very smooth, or just strain pressing the solids, and pour on a container. Add sugar to taste, and refrigerate.
