Homemade Tart Apple Liqueur (Meilach) Recipe

From Homemade Liqueurs by Dona and Mel Meilach:

Cut apples into 8 pieces, remove cores. Don't peel. Put all ingredients in a jar, and set in the sun for several days [a week works for me] or until all the sugar has dissolved and been absorbed. Strain, filter, age for 2-3 months.

I've found this recipe, with Granny Smith apples, to be a little too sweet for my tastes, especially after it's aged for more than a year. But it may be great for you
