Remarks
If you'd like a more syrupy drink, add a little more sugar.

To bring out even more cardamom flavour, chop or crush the seeds as well. You can also give the tonka*, cardamom and vanilla a quick blast in a blender before adding this ground spice mixture to the apples.

*American cooks should be aware that tonka beans are currently banned in the USA by the FDA.
Keeping
A few days in the fridge, in a sealed bottle.
