Elma Cayi

Elma Cayi
Turkish Apple Tea

2 red apples, do not peel and do not remove the seeds, cut in 4 or 6
1 orange, do not peel, cut in 4 or 6
1 stick cinnamon
2 whole cloves
4 cup water

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer until the fruits are tender. Strain into the bowl pushing gently with the back of the spoon to remove all the liquid. Then pour into the tea glasses.

If you like you may sweeten with honey.

It won't kill you if you add sugar ... :)

    Apple Tea speeds up metabolism increases the amount of urine. It makes people who have weight problem throw edema. Boil the orange with its skin which contains citric acid. Citric acid is also available in medication for losing weight.
    Thanks to the mineral salts found in Apple Tea that act as urine remover and blood cleaner. In addition, it strengthens the body against uric acid and rheumatism. Vitamins and mineral salts gives energy and freshness. The presence of vitamin A keeps the respiratory tract, nerve system, blood vessels and the skin healthy.
    Apple Tea strengthens both the heart and stomach.

    I say: add more water and sugar (to taste) and it is a very fine summer drink :)
