This recipie is incomplete. I started making it and it doesn't tell you what to do with the vinegar, salt or the onions. I gave up and made another recipie. Sorry..it looks like a great recipie but I didn't want a disaster by adding the wrong ingredient at the wrong time.
I like this recipe it is one that my hubby got from his grandma.we are making them as i type . 5 stars from me.
Jan Marie, what are you talking about? Look at steps 1 and 3. Salt obviously goes into the brine, but that was the only thing left out.
