Drinks And Beverages for the Sick (1/?) – Apple Water

Godey’s Lady’s Magazine 1864 * – September

APPLE WATER is very delicate.  Cut two large apples in slices, and pour one quart of boiling water on them; or on roasted apples; strain in two or three hours, and sweeten lightly.

Or: Peel and quarter four large acid apples; put them in one quart of water, with the peel of half a lemon, and a handful of washed currants; let all boil for one hour, then strain and add sugar to taste.  Let it remain till cold.  A little wine may be added to it when about to be drunk.
