Fantastic stuff! I didn't have five hours to tend it so I put it in my crockpot on high for about 24 hours, and it came out beautifully. Thick and dark and syrupy, and with a very strong apple flavor. I did throw a few cinnamon sticks into the pot before cooking, but next time I'll try it without. I used a half gallon of cider and ended up with exactly two 4 oz. jars full of the syrup. I'm making an apple pie for our Halloween potluck on Friday, and I can't wait to use this cider in the pie. From what I have heard, this stuff keeps forever if you put it in the fridge, so I think I will wait for cider to go on sale again, and make a ton of it in these little tiny jars for Christmas. Thanks a mil, Grandma.
