I authored the recipe. There is a typo. It should be 1/4 cup vinegar.

I think there's an ingredient error in this recipe. It calls for "1/4 drop distilled white vinegar"...I added 1/4 cup it tasted fine and I thought it had just the right amount of tartness. Hopefully AR will get this corrected.

I'm on a diet where I can eat ALL the low GI Veggies I want and not a whole lot more. So the cranberry juice that already has sugar in it wasn't an option for me but I did have whole cranberries in the freezer from the Holidays so I swapped in those and added just a touch of honey. I also preferred it cold and added walnuts on top.

I ground some fresh cranberries in water to make the cranberry juice and used honey in place of the sugar. This is a really good tasting dish!

Love this recipe.It reminds me of my childhood when my German grandmother would make it for us. I did have to add a little more sugar to make it taste just like my grandmothers. My family loves it.

I did make a little change I added another Tablespoon of white vinegar to it. Next time I want to add some whole cranberries to it.
