Makes 2 litres
- 10 apples
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- 1 small thumb of ginger, sliced
- 3 tbsp honey
- 2 thick pieces of lemon zest
- 2 Rooibos tea bags
Place the apples and the sugar in a large pot. Place over a medium heat and allow the apples to soften and the sugar to caramelise a little.
Add all the other ingredients, except for the rooibos tea bags, leave to cook for another 3 min, before adding 3 litres of cold water. Bring to a gentle simmer and continue cooking for 1 hour.
Add the tea bags and leave to cook for about 20 min.
Taste and adjust the flavour, adding extra honey or lemon if necessary.
