This recipe was inspired by the heritage apples at Taurus Crafts in Lydney, close to where I live in the Forest of Dean. I bought some beautiful apples and snaffled them home. It was a cold foggy night and I made this drink for both myself and my friend, Kristyn.

NOTES: If you are using a masticating juicer then you can warm this in the dehydrator at 115 degrees F for an hour instead of using the stove. Masticating juicers keep the juice stable and at a higher quality for longer than centrifugal juicers.
