This makes great holiday gifts. I found this in Know Your Apples M.A.C.S. Alumni Scholarship Fund. This recipe was posted by Kathy Meyer Pavelock. I have not tried this recipe, but I'm posting it for safe keeping.
Cut apples in quarters and remove the cores, but do not peel. Place apples, cloves, cinnamon and vodka into a glass jar. Let steep for 2 weeks. Strain mixture using cheese cloth and then filter the resulting liquid using a coffee filter.
Mix sugar and water together in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until all the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is clear. Cool completely. Add cooled sugar mixture to alcohol mixture. Let stand in dark cool area for 2-3 months. Transfer to decorative bottles.
