- 4 lbs apples, cored and sliced (don’t peel)
- 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 cup apple cider
grated zest and juice of one lemon 3 TBS grated ginger Combine apples, brown sugar, apple cider, zest, juice.
Cover and cook 8-10 hours on low, til apples are very soft.
(A good thing to do overnight!) Then stir in ginger, in crease heat to high,
uncover and cook (stirring now and then) til mixture is reduced to about 3 cups for 8 to 10 hours.
(This part sounds kind of incredible, come to think of it…I can’t imagine sticking around for 10 hours to stiroccasionally…oh
well, I’ve come this far, might as well continue!).
Put the resulting mash through a food mill.
