Pudding Hard Sauce

My Mother used to make a Hard Sauce that she served over hot Bread Pudding and/or Gingerbread.

It had the color and clarity of a good Bourbon Whiskey and the consistency was that similar to hot honey,maybe a bit thinner. I know she cooked it in a double boiler and the base ingredient was Apple Cider or Apple Vinegar. I sure wish I had some right now but don't have the foggiest of how to put it together with any and all other unknown ingredients,


In your cooking world have you ever run across this or maybe have access to a place it may be found,,,,,,,the area was lower Central Michigan but the recipe was probably one of her own so that may not be much help.

I remember this from my boyhood in the 1940's so it's been a while since I had any. Please e mail me if you have a lead on this recipe
