● 1 kg green apples (peeled)
● 700 g brown or white sugar
● 280 g water
● 1 cinnamon stick
● juice of 1 lemon
● 1 sprig rose geranium
Peel the apples, slice in half and remove the seeds.
Put the water and the sugar in a large pot and boil for 10 minutes.
Add the apples to the syrup with the cinnamon stick and boil for another 20-25 minutes until the syrup has thickened.
If necessary, remove any foam with a spoon.
Turn off the heat, add the rose geranium sprig and leave the sprig in the hot syrup for 15 minutes for it to release its fragrance and then discard it.
To see if the syrup has the desired consistency, put some syrup on a saucer and allow to cool. Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the syrup is ready.
