Great Recipes I changed a few things though I add and extra 1cup of grain Alcohol and an extra .5cup of vodka (WE LIKE IT REALLY STRONG) I also put a cinnamon stick and half a vanilla bean in each jar before bottling. One other thing due to the alcohol Content being so high you can store them at room temp... thanks for a great recipe everyone enjoys this stuff...
I've been making apple pie for about 5 years now. I prefer to use applied cider vs apple juice, but that's just me. A few times I have sliced apples and put them in the mason jars when I fill them.....it's like eating the tequila worm, very high alcohol content. Lol Also, as a few have said, due to the high alcohol content, you do not need to refrigerate, I'd advise not to. If you you open a jar and don't finish it,then yes refrigerate it or it will go bad. During my years I've found that the longer it sits.....the better it gets. I let mine sit for a min of 3 months in my storage area before drinking it. I have a few that I still have left that are just over a year old and opened one the other day.....holy cow! Very great taste and we'll aged....yummy! This fall I'm going to get one of those 30qt turkey fryers for outside and going to try making large batches and furthering my experimenting. When I bottle, I put 1-2 sticks in and sometimes some sliced apples. If you have a filter or strainer that helps take out alot of the "floaties". Also try this- instead of mixing the alcohol in the pot, put some in the jars first, and then pour the cooled cider into the jars. That way it will be easier to tell just how much alcohol is in your jars instead of guessing. Try it with different levels and strengths, find your sweet spot. :) Hope this helps alot of people.
My hubby, Mitch, made this recipe! Only gave it 4 stars because we did not add the white sugar! Thought it would make it too sweet for our tastes. We didn't miss it! It was great! You can serve this hot or cold! We tried both and it's great as a hot toddy if you have the flu! Just warm a bit before bed, sip it and get a great nights sleep! ;)
This is delicious! Since a 750 mL bottle of Everclear comes out to a little more than 3 cups I just used it all. Other than that - made the recipe exactly & it tastes awesome! The alcohol content is about 30% (you can barely taste it) so I might try it again with a little more Everclear to get it closer to 40% and a little more kick.
I made it just as written I would have rated it higher but it was way too much of alcohol taste for me. I may be a light weight too when it comes to liquor. It smells really good and does taste somewhat like apple pie.
