I introduced some co-workers to cowboy shooting last week and of course that meant introducing them to apple pie also!

 

Now several want to make their own and I saved recipes on my old computer so do not have access any more.

 

Any suggestions?

I have no idea as I've never even sampled any apple pie of the drinking variety.

 

But I will give you a bump to the top and this link to a google search on the subject.

My version (sort of) is a gallon of unfiltered cider, a fifth or two of medium quality brandy (depends on how strong you want it. You could use vodka or bourbon just as well. Or spiced rum. Or Meyers Dark Rum), a couple of cinnamon sticks, a few whole allspice, and some cloves. A few cups of sugar. Sometimes I'll core and slice up some apples to toss in. Mix everything up in a big pot and stir until sugar dissolves - you could mix it with some of the cider and heat it up - then divide it among several large jars. Store in a cool dark place for at least a week, either shaking or inverting the jars every day.

 

Strain off and bottle. If you used slice apples, they will take on a lot of the raw alcohol taste. But don't throw them out, they are great to use in mince meat, or cooked with pork and onions. Or chopped up and put on icecream or cake.

Meg, hands down the best ever~! ^_^

 

HOSS'S APPLE PIE

 

FIRST

 

Place 2 cups of raisins in a small pot. Add water until raisins are covered. Boil until the water is absorbed.

 

SECOND

 

Combine the following ingredients in a large pot.

- 1 gallon pure apple cider (not apple juice)

- 4 whole cinnamon sticks (broken up)

- 1 teaspoon allspice

- 1 teaspoon whole cloves or 1/2 teaspoon crushed cloves

- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

- 2 cups raisins from step one

- Bring to a slow rolling boil and let boil 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool, then strain with cheese cloth or coffee filter. A cotton dish towel works best.

 

THIRD

 

Place strained liquid back on burner and add the following ingredients.

- ½ cup brown sugar

- 3 table spoons maple syrup

Bring to a boil again, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Remove from fire and allow mixture to cool.

 

FOURTH

 

ADD THE BOOZE

-3 cups Bacardi 151 Rum (preferred), or use Everclear 150 (perfectly acceptable!).

Other kinds of booze can be used, but for best results use one of the above – Bacardi is top choice!

 

Pour it into your jug. For best results let it set for at least two weeks. You can drink it right away, but it only gets better with time.

 

;)

6 cinnamon sticks

 

Bring the above ingredients to a simmer until the sugar is melted.

Let it cool.

 

Add 1 quart of everclear.

 

I also add 1 - 29 or 30 oz. can of pears, blended..

Of course CAS means also Apple Pie? I like the way you shoot. :) If you mix gunpowder with apple pie, you should have some happy guests.

4-5 cinnamon hard candies

1 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp whole cloves

Bring to a slow rolling boil for 15 min. Stir occasionally. Let cool a bit then strain with cheesecloth

Put liquid back on burner and add the following:

Bring to a boil again stirring until all sugar is disolved.

Cool all the way this time.

 

NOW FOR THE BOOZE

Add 2 cups of Bacardi 151 rum

Bottle and let set for at least two weeks, but the longer the better.

That's the way Rocky makes it but I just double everything so there's enough to bottle and give away. :P
