- 3 apples organic – core and peel included, no stem
- 3 tsp raw sugar
- 2 cups filtered water or enough to cover apples
- Wash and chop your apples into medium sized pieces (or use the peels and cores of 6-7small apples after making a pie). Place them in a clean, rinsed and sterilised wide mouth jar.
- Mix the sugar with 1 cup of water and pour on top of the apples.
- Add more water as needed until the apples are just covered. Amount varies on size of apples used.
- Cover the jar with a paper towel or a cheesecloth and secure it with a band.
- Place the jar in a warm, dark place for 2-3 weeks – like your pantry.
- Strain out the liquid and discard the apple pieces.
- Return the liquid to the same jar and cover it again (same paper or cheesecloth).
- Return the jar to the same place and leave it to ferment for roughly 4 to 6 weeks, stirring with a plastic or wooden spoon every few days or so.
