5 star definitely! with one modification, chopping the apples small, really small. Like everyone mentions, it doesn't really taste like caramel, but it does have the caramel color. A few things to consider: My sister-in-law made some soon after I did and all she had was dark brown sugar (I used light brown) and I think it looks better with the light brown sugar, though they both tasted excellent. And also, when it says to bring the water and apples to a boil, it doesn't really boil, per se, because it's not like you've got a soupy/watery texture yet, so more just wait to hear air bubbles rise to the surface (little air noises -poof-). If you make this you might know what I mean. I only added 1/2 c water, like the recipe states and so you aren't going to get a "boil". Anyways, and yes, once you add the sugars, it gets very liquidy, then it will boil. Oh, and sooo incredibly tasty on fresh baked cinnamon raisin bread. Almost makes me want to carve a pumpkin or rake leaves or something. Very "fall" tasting.
