    I made this on firday and served it as the alternative to cranberry sauce for thanksgiving dinner yesterday. It was fantastic, tasted great with poultry. About about to share the recipe on facebook now at the insistance of my guests . I folowed the recipe pretty closely except that I used 1/2 cup cider vinegar and 1/4 cup white wine vinegar and i used rasins instead of dried cherries.  -  12 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
