Peel, core, and slice apples into a heavy bottomed saucepan. Add dried fruits, spices, water, and 1T vinegar. Cover, and cook on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. When apples are soft, after about 30 minutes, mix in the remaining vinegar and the brown sugar. Let simmer, stirring frequently, until the sugar is dissolved, about another 20 minutes. Serve hot or cold, with bread, cheeses, or with cheesecakes. Store in a glass jar, in the fridge for up to 2 months.
To make this recipe vegan, substitute evaporated cane juice or molasses for the light brown sugar.
