What is apple concentrate?
Apple concentrate is produced by removing water from freshly pressed apple juice by evaporation under vacuum. This concentrates the natural sugars in the juice and makes it easier to store and transport.

This apple variety dates from around the early 1900’s. It was found by William Dabinett and grown as a natural seedling in a hedge in South Petherton, Somerset. Classed as a “Bittersweet Cider Apple,” Dabinett has a small, yellow green fruit – flecked with red and usually harvested in November in the UK. The flesh is green and aromatic.

The juice is characterised as having high tannin and low acid.
