Always great; I added about 1/3 teas. sugar too. Made for O is for Oct. event.
I grew up with this being a staple on the table for many dinners at our house. My gram would also add a little sugar in with the vinegar and a splash of water, and it gives it a really nice flavor. Sometimes she would just slice up cucumbers or just onion slices and use the vinegar and sugar and a splash of water... YUM... Brings back so many fond memories :)
