In a small skillet over medium heat add 3 ounces vinegar and the sugar.
Let it reduce until the color turns a dark caramel color and begins to thicken.
You will start to see big foamy bubbles on the surface.
Add the apples and garlic and sauté until the apples are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and put in the blender with 1 ounce of vinegar, thyme, juice of ½ lemon and a pinch of salt.
Woosh until blended, then slowly add the oil.
Blend until the dressing is emulsified.
Taste and season with salt and perhaps a splash more vinegar.
