  1. Cut unpeeled apples in half lengthwise. Remove core and thinly slice (1/4 inch). Set aside.

  3. To the bowl of broth, add the maple syrup, red wine vinegar, sage, and Dijon mustard. Stir well and set aside.

* I have used Worthington Loma Linda vegetarian products for many years, and I love them. Recently, I received samples of the newest Worthington Loma Linda products from Atlantic Natural Foods, and in the interest of full disclosure, I have used them in this recipe.
