Pare, core and cut into halves the apples and lay them in cold water with a little lemon juice or a little vinegar; put the cores and peels over the fire, cover with water and boil till soft; strain through a coarse bag, return the liquor to saucepan and add the juice of 1 lemon, a little of the rind and the sugar; as soon as it boils put in the apples; let them boil until a straw will pierce through them easily; remove the apples to a dish and strain the liquor over them; serve when cold. A few whole cloves and a piece of cinnamon may be added if the flavor is liked.
