I made a 1/3 version of your recipe as written for ZWT6, mainly because I love this stuff but DH does not care for it. There are 3 things that esp appealed to me about this recipe: 1) The added fruit, esp the cranberry .. 2) Since the fruit adds a measure of sweetness, sugar is then added to suit taste pref .. & 3) The recipe is easily down-sized (as I did) or can be made for larger crowds as this is a very popular dish to accompany spec dinner meals & holiday dining fare in Iceland. All that said, it is an easy-fix w/an excellent result & I espect I will rely on it freq. It was combined with Smorgastarta - Swedish Sandwich Torte by CJAY (another ZWT6 effort) to make a tasty lunch. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
I love this (being Danish) and I couldn't understand why people thought it had to much vinegar in, until I checked my 'god mad -let at lave' (the original recipe) and it seems foo.com have a type-o. The original recipe calls for 50-100ml of vinegar (about half the amount of juice). I live in the UK and have to use cranberry juice too, but it is even nicer with redcurrent juice which is the traditional thing to use.
I agree that the vinegar is a bit much, but I really like that there is no onions in the recipe which is hard to come by.
As much as I love vinegar, I feel it overpowered any flavor that might have come from the cranberry juice. With a watchful eye, I believe the vinegar can be cut in half as you cook this. This may allow the cranberry flavor to come out more. I will make this again, with those changes. As it is a colorful dish to put on your table. Made for the Went to the Market tag game.
first we need more stars. This was excellent I made it twicw in 1 week . we just loved it thanks
This reminded me of mom's red cabbage only she didn't use cranberry juice. It added a special taste. I'll make this again. Made for Think Pink Tag Game 2010.
