Wash the apples and chop into small pieces. Place the chopped apple in a pan and add the water. Cover and simmer for about 20 minutes. Strain the mixture through a jelly cloth for 30 minutes. Juice the lemons and mix the juice with the apple liquid. Clean the pan. Measure the liquid and pour it back into the pan. Bring to the boil. Add 6 dl sugar per litre of liquid. Add the citric acid. Bring back to the boil. Skim off any scum. Pour into warm, sterilised bottles. Seal. Store in the refrigerator. If there’s no room in your fridge for storing the cordial, add a preservative. The apples can also be boiled in a juice boiler.
