750 g (1.5lb) white sugar
1 kg (2lb) apples
2 lemons
2 oranges
2 campden tablets


Dissolve the campden tablets and sugar in 3.5litres (6pints) water.
Grate the apples and add to the water.
Extract the juice of the lemons and the oranges and add to the mixture.
Add enough water to bring the volume up to 5 litres (1 gallon).
Chop the orange and lemon peel and add to the vessel. Leave overnight
and add the yeast. Cover with cling wrap and store at a constant
temperature of 18-21c (65-70f).
When fermentation is complete strain the mixture through muslin into
glass storage jars, leaving the yeast deposit behind.
Store in filled jars in a cool place for several months until the cider
is quite clear. Siphon off again from the yeast deposit and bottle.
Leave for a few weeks before drinking.
