  1. Melt butter in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Cook for an additional 50 minutes to 1 hour 15 minutes until golden brown, stir occasionally.
  2. Add pepper, apple, and thyme. Cook 3-5 minutes until apple has softened. Add wine and broth bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 45 minutes. Stir in vinegar.
