Step One: Find a friend.
Step Two: Pick some apples.
Our apples came from Stoney Ridge Farm and a friend's family's orchard.
Make sure you get a variety, at least three different kinds, to create an interesting flavor. We used jonagold, golden delicious, and melrose.
Step Three: Wash, peel, and slice the apples.
Step Four: Combine apples, apple cider, lemon juice, and cinnamon in a large pot. Simmer for about twenty minutes, until the apples are soft but not mushy. Smash it all up.
Step Five: Take it outside to cool. (We were under a time crunch).
Step Six: Invest time to make cute little labels.
Step Seven: Pour into jars.
Step Eight: Add the labels and enjoy a Farm Wife morning.
