Good recipe for a sauce that complements everything from eggs to kielbasa, etc. The only change I made was to use apple cider vinegar (all I had) and the sauce was delish. The only bit of advice I have to share is to not make this right before the company shows up - it fills the house with a vinegar smell as it comes to a boil...I was scrambling to be rid of the odor :-)

The flavour of this vinegary, sweet sauce is good and complements ham well. However, the texture was floury. Half the recipe was enough for 3 adults.

Great sauce Laurie! I made it as written, except I substituted white vinegar for tarragon vinegar, because that's what we had here. Awesome on ham!

Very good. I served this as a dip with our ham and swiss melts. Tasty. I haven't heard of tarragon vinegar so I used white vinegar and added some tarragon to the sauce. Turned out great. Will be in my keeper list. Thanks.

Very easy to make. Nice consistency. A bit too vinegary for me. I would add half the amount and then adjust to taste.

This sauce was excellent. Even my picky 5-year old liked it. I've read the other reviews and no one in my family thought this was too floury or too vinergary. It was the perfect combination of sweet and tart. A really nice sauce that I will make again! Thanks!!!
