Do not bother making this the recipe is wrong calls for white vinegar which I think it should be lemon juice and it doesn't thicken up what a waste of my money

This turned out to be delicious and received raves, but I had to add about 1/2 c. sugar to it after mixing it all together. The recipe calls for white vinegar, and all I had was cider vinegar, so I used that. Maybe that was why it just wasn't sweet enough. But no problem.....the added sugar cut the vinegar that was over-powering everything and made it taste good Everyone loved it.

I make this every Christmas. I particulary love it because it can be made the night before and it keeps very well. The added bonus is that it is delicious!
