4.5 litres (1 gallon) cider



Put the cider in a non-reactive saucepan, and bring to the boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer for several hours (could be up to 5) until it has reduced in volume about 9 times, or is the consistency of maple syrup.

Take care towards the end to stir frequently to stop it catching in the pan.

Tip: If your pan is straight sided you can use a ruler to work out what 1/9th looks like. Else you can tip 1/9th of the original volume in first to get an idea, then add the rest of the cider.

Bottle in a sterilised bottle or jar.
Keeps in the fridge for a year.
