    winkki's Note:

    A cinnamon-y fruit topping that tastes great over pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, etc. From the Black Dog Inn B&B in Estes Park, Colorado. Mix and match different kinds of apples for a more robust flavor. Also good with a few raisins or dried cranberries thrown in; just make sure to add a little more water or juice to allow them to plump up enough.

      I thought that this was wonderful and was exactly what I was looking for. I live overseas where it isn't possible to get pancake syrup (or the common ingredients for making your own). I have been trying to find something yummy to put on pancakes using local ingredients. I used apple juice rather than orange juice. Also, I found that the topping wasn't as thick as I wanted so I added 1 tbsp of cornstarch (mixed with 1 tbsp of cold water) after the apples were softened and continued to cook the mixture uncovered until it thickened. Absolutely delicious!

      This is exactly what I was looking for, to accompany my oatmeal pancakes. Truly a fantastic recipe, thank you so much! I had to tweak it because I didn't have any OJ, so I just used the juice from a can of peaches, but I'm sure the OJ is even better.

      This was good, but very 'orangy' from the orange juice. I think I would try next time with apple juice? I also used half splenda and half sugar and it was still plenty sweet. I also did not have a need to add extra liquid, I actually had to turn the burner up higher to get some of the juice to evaporate.
