You might just want to use the zest and avoid the pith.

good point, time to zest the hell out of 6 oranges!

EDIT: i might also just zest, then peel, then blend the oranges whole, then boil

Btw interested in suggested primary, secondary and conditioning times? I left a cider 2 week prim 1 week sec and 2 weeks into bottling. 1st sample tastes like apple champagne but needs more time.

I've never liked the flavor of brown sugar prefer honey and molasses

ok i put it all in primary tonight, i used the skins after i zested them, to get the most juice out of the oranges, and added apple juice into the boiling pot to give it a more watery consistency, and now the entire house smells like delicious apple pie, after pouring it all together, it smells great, cant wait to bottle it!
will keep everyone posted

Do you have a recipe for your ginger ale?
