Mix the apples with the sugar and leave for two days until juice is formed.

Pour the juice into boiling pot and let it brew at low temperature by half the amount, the remaining juice should be dark and thickened. Add 3/4 of the apple slices and cook on the stove for about 1 hour, stirring continuously, until the quantity is quite thick and no more juice separates.

Add the remaining apple slices as ditto the cinnamon and cook on the stove just until these slices are soft but still light in color, this will create a marble effect in the quantity.

Pour the quantity into a wet cheese bag and weigh it down between two boards for 2 days. Then hang to dry in an airy place. Keep in a cool, dry place.

This is a Lithuanian delicacy served with wine, tea and coffee.

Tip: Cinnamon adds a wonderful sweet-spicy note to dishes!
