    I didn’t have enough cider vinegar, so I used about half white wine vinegar, and a little bit of malt vinegar to get 2 cups. Doesn’t taste exactly like the store bought stuff, but pretty good!

    I keep this made up in my refrigerator and use it for too many recipes to name here. I recommend it to friends, family, and my viewers on blog. I link to it is all my recipes that I publish on my blog.

      I can't seem to edit my previous comment, my last sentence should read, "I link to it in all my recipes that I use it in that I publish on my blog."

    I NEVER comment on recipes, but after reading the ridiculous comments below I feel compelled to do so. First of all, I came across this recipe because I am looking for a gluten free substitute for Worcestershire sauce to use in a chicken marinade. Yes, I said chicken!! I have a nephew who has severe food allergies that include wheat/gluten, dairy, nuts, and eggs. I just wanted a safe alternative to Worcestershire sauce to use in a marinade so the child can eat what everyone else eats. Just because something is "vegan" doesn't necessarily mean that the person using it is a vegan. I just think it's quite silly to get so offended by a recipe. I only read the comments to see what everyone thought about it and how it tastes. I obviously didn't find reviews of the recipe, but instead I found the indignant rants and borderline lectures about how to be a vegan. I just wanted a recipe that is safe for my nephew. This recipe seems to be that, so thank you Martha. Haters gonna hate! Like another comment said "go to a vegan recipe site if you don't wish to come across non-vegan recipes". I'm pretty sure it's no secret that Martha is not a vegan so it shouldn't be a shock that she has non-vegan recipes. Sorry. Not sorry.

      There are about four short, mild comments from vegans questioning why the recipe suggests pairing a vegan sauce with lamb. Not sure where you're seeing these "indignant rants and borderline lectures about how to be vegan." The only rants, lectures, and nastiness I'm seeing is in the comments like yours railing against those few mild vegan posts. Haters gonna hate, indeed.

    I find it interesting that there has been all of this discussion around whether or not this should be called "vegan" and no one noticed that a recipe that calls for 2 cups of apple cider vinegar yields 1 cup of product. I used 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and the recipe was wonderful. Cheers!

      It's because the recipe directions say to "reduce heat to a simmer and cook until liquid is reduced by half." No judgment, but I'm curious to know how you cooked this recipe without reading that part?

    I used this simple recipe to make Chex Mix. It worked wonderfully and my husband said it was way better than the original he grew up with. And yes, our entire family is vegan. Thanks Martha!

    Really, who cares about the lamb stew? Not everyone that uses vegan recipes is vegan. Is it also wrong to post a recipe of a nut-free sauce and to suggest to eat it with a dish containing nuts? Go to a vegan recipe site if you don't wish to come across non-vegan recipes, I'm also a vegan but it's ridiculous to be offended by this.

    I wanted to make a gluten-free, vegan gazpacho soup for my coworkers so that all could enjoy but my recipe called for Worcestershire sauce. I did not want to skip the flavor, so I found this recipe. I subbed tamari for the soy sauce (which often has gluten) and it turned out great! Thanks Martha
