SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was great!  I used steamed fresh green beans because I hate canned ones, and I used a mixture of apple cider, rice and red wine vinegars, and it turned out perfectly.  Next time, I may add a little thinly sliced celery to the onions and garlic.

I used a basil-oregano flavored vinegar and 2/3rds of the sugar. Very tasty!

I made this early for Thanksgiving, tried a small portion of it and had trouble stopping myself from eating it all! This turned out great!  ;)b

This was a great recipe, thanks. By trying to use up what was in my cupboard I substituted the regular vinegar with apple cider vinegar and cut the amount of sugar to about 2tbsp. It turned out great and I think this is a good versatile recipe.
