- 8-10 apples, quartered
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 tsp whole allspice
- 1/4 cup maple syrup (optional)
Add the apples to a large saucepot and cover with water. Boil mixture on medium-high for one hour. After one hour, reduce the heat to medium-low, add the spice sachet and maple syrup (if using). Cover and simmer for two hours. After two hours, remove the sachet and strain the apples through a fine mesh sieve. Discard the solids. Strain a second time through a fine mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth for a smoother consistency.
Serve immediately hot or cold. Refrigerate for up to a week or freeze it for up to 6 months.
