  3. Cover with apple cider, bring to a boil,
  4. then turn the heat down and simmer until the apples are mushy.
  5. Run the apples through a food mill to remove the peels and seeds,
  6. then dump back into the pot with the juices.
  7. Add the sugar, bring to a boil again,
  8. then put on the lowest heat and simmer.
