organic apple juice
or cider (64 oz.)
Pour a full 64 oz. jug of organic apple juice into a large pot.
Bring to a slow boil and then turn down the heat to low and let it simmer for about 3 hours.
Cook down the apple juice until there is 1 cup of liquid left in the pot. Be sure to check on it frequently as it starts to get low.
Pour the contents of the pot into a glass measuring container to measure the liquid. If there is more than 1 cup of liquid, pour back into the pot and simmer longer.
If there is less than 1 cup of liquid, add a little water to it until it equals 1 cup.
Use as you would honey.
Don't walk away from your "honey" too long, when it gets low, it can burn quickly.
Check your remaining volume of "honey" by using a glass measuring container (not plastic) to measure the liquid. If there is more than 1 cup of liquid, pour back into the pot and simmer longer.
If there is less than 1 cup of liquid, add a little water to it until it equals 1 cup. This will give you the correct consistency.
Your honey will thicken in the fridge when it cools down.
