"Smell wonderful, taste good now, will get better. I used less sugar, equal amount of vinegar and sugar."
"we loved the recipe and will make again. The only thing was way to much juice."
"As if these don't already go too quickly...use them with ring bologna run them through a grinder together..mix with mayo and you will have the worlds best sandwich spread! Way better than deli type!"
