This year there seems to be such a glut of apples so I thought this might come in useful¦¦!! 

It comes from a great site, with a mass of recipes

http://www.angelfire.com/wy/DaBoozer/liqueurs.html#apple 

 

"APPLE LIQUEUR"~ From Germany                       
   
This is a good one for those nights in front of the fire. I prefer the spicy taste of the cloves and cinnamon.
  • 2 ½ pounds of sweet apples
  • 1 1/2 cup vodka
  • 2 1/2 cups brandy
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¾ cups water
  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 dozen whole cloves

Wash apples well and remove stems. Slice into thin pieces and add to an aging container with the alcohol, cinnamon and cloves. Age for about 5 to 6 weeks. Make simple syrup with sugar and water, allowing to cool. Remove solids from liquid and pour liquid back into aging container. Extract juice from apples and remove cloves and cinnamon sticks. Pour juice into liquid mix and add syrup. Allow this to age for about 2 or 3 months (this is all theory, mine was tried after a couple of weeks). I used a food processor on the apples and squeezed them inside of a grain boiling bag. This seemed to work well.

 

cheers

Interesting site- some of the recipes look OK, some a bit doubtful of the flavour in the end- instant coffee in recipes is never as succesful as the extracted coffee that would have been used in the original recipes, but worth a go.
