Thanks to Jeff Smith (Frugal Gourmet) for including this in his Christmas book AND my family favorites for Christmas dinner. Tangy and sweet at the same time. EXCELLENT color for a holiday meal--jazzes up the table.

I did make a few changes because of the ingredients on hand. I used regular white vinegar, and added a peeled-diced gala apple. I didn't think I wanted a beef broth base so I just used a very small amount of water. The family liked it!
