    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.
