Smelled Heavenly! Tasted really mediocre and bland. After hearing the complaints of small volume, i decided to bring to a boil only breifly and then simmer for an hour, covered. upon tasting, i realised this was not delciious and was mostly just water with a slight hint of apple and cinnamon. so i removed most of the large particles(peels) and allowed the stuff to simmer uncovered for another hour. the flavor improved within that hour! but still not great, so i took a cup or so of unsweetened applesauce that had been taking up space in my fridge, and added that to the mix. stirred it up and took a sip, much better! Then i put everything i had strained out previously back into the pot, brought it back up to a boil, covered it and held it at a very low boil for 30 minutes to soften up some more. I also added some orange peel. I'm still not in love with the recipe, but since thanksgiving is tomorrow and i'm now out of apples, it will have to do. next time i think i'll replace the water with apple juice, and use better quality apples - the bagged ones just aren't that great.
