    Judy-Jude's Note:

    It's apple time! This is wonderful apple brandy. It's quick and easy. The longer it sits, the better. I just strain it through cheesecloth before serving, if it settles again. I have also used coffee filters for a fine strain, it just takes longer. I have some that is 8 years old and it is a beautiful amber color and very smooth.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    gallon

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      I remove the seeds because I think they make it bitter if left in the apple.
    2. 2
      I don't use top shelf brandy, I use a less expensive brandy but not the cheapest either, something in between.
    3. 3
      I use a glass gallon screw-top jar.
    4. 4
      Combine all ingredients and place cover on tightly-invert jar, I always place it in a large pan, just in case it might leak.
    5. 5
      (although, this has never happened) Let jar stand 24 hours, turn jar upright and let stand another 24 hours.
    6. 6
      Repeat process until sugar dissolves.
    7. 7
      Store in a dark, cool place 4-6 weeks.
    8. 8
      Strain through cheesecloth into decanter.
    9. 9
      Note: I always use very dark red sweet apples and I think that it is the dark red skin that gives the brandy a nice color.

      I was so exited to try this recipe and it turned out excellent! I let this sit for a month under the sink, shook it every few days and strained it into a decanter for Thanksgiving. I thought the apple theme would go great for the holiday and would be perfect for hot spiked cider. Boy was it ever! Easy and delicious. I think I'm going to make some more and give it away as Christmas gifts. Thank you!
