Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add quartered apples and orange to the stock pot with 1 gallon of water. Add your warming spices and ginger. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cover for 2 to 2.5 hours, until apples are soft.
  • Smash apples with a potato masher, then strain through a metal sieve. Discard fruit and whole spices.
  • Taste, and over low heat, stir in sweetener to dissolve and adjust sweetener to taste. Serve warm or chilled.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.

Notes

  • This is the best estimate we could come up with for nutrition facts, since we aren't food scientists. 
  • Use a mixture of sweet and tart apples! 
  • Please sweeten to taste, and start out slow after you strain away the fruit solids. 
  • All whole spices are technically optional, but highly recommended! 
  • Lots of water will evaporate while cooking, so you will need to add more at the end!
