2 cups red wine vinegar
2 cups water
2 medium-size onions, sliced
1 lemon, sliced

4 bay leaves
6 peppercorns
2 tablespoons salt

Melt butter in a saucepan. Blend in the remaining 6 tablespoons flour and 1 tablespoon sugar. Continue to heat and stir until rich brown in color. Stir in remaining vinegar mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened. POur over meat; simmer, covered 1 hour longer or until meat is tender. Remove meat from gravy; keep hot. Put gingersnaps in gravy and stir until thickened. Slice hot meat; arrange on platter and pour gravy over top. Makes 8-12 servings.
