“We had a German Theme Week in our craft club one month and this is what I made. I thought is was going to be horrible with the vinigar in it, but much to my supprise it was WONDERFUL! The longer it set the better it got. EVERY WOMAN there asked me for the recipe. Needless to say it was a hit! NOTHING left to bring home.”
