Peel and cut your apples. I have a hand cranked peeler that I use for this. You can find one at home stores like Old Time Pottery for about $10 USD.
Put apples into stock pot and just cover them with water. Add sugar.
Wrap spices in cheese cloth and tie securely. Drop in with apples.
Boil on high heat for 1 hour, checking frequently. Turn down the heat and simmer for an additional 2 hours.
Take off heat and let cool as much as you prefer. Remove spices, then mash.
Pour into cheese cloth lined strainer over a large bowl. Squeeze juice from cloth.
Reheat and drink. You can save your leftover mush to use as apple sauce!
Serve with a cinnamon stick, whipped cream and cinnamon powder, or marshmallows.
