These sounded awesome and easy. I had to try making them. I used my little teeny walking onions for this. Boy, do they suck up the vinegar. Loved the way the Catawissa onions felt after brining-like an olive. I'll add to the review after I get to taste them. I think they'll ba a hit on the buffet tray. Thanks Ms. Tart for another great recipe.
mmm can hardly wait, these look wonderful!! I went the brining route, but didn't get them bottled for 3 days. I used bought pickling spices and used 3 small jars. These were so easy, except for peeling them :cry: but I wish I had bought more onions!! Again I will be back around the end of October.
Just found this recipe! I will be making these real soon and post my review when finished. I have been looking for a recipe like this for years... guess what FT had it ! Edited 08/09/08: I can't believe I did not come back here and finish my review! Tasty, wonderful, and great! The 3 jars I have stored will bring pleasure for some months!
My very first attempt... so far, so good :D. I never did find pickling spices, so I searched books for inspiration, and finally used, as per FTs suggestion, some black and green peppercorns, some mustard seeds (courtesy Prue Leiths Bible), and a cinnamon stick... would have used mace leaves but only had ground mace, thought ground spices were probably what NOT to use! So.. the proof of the pudding is in the eating, which will only be around end of October or later, but I think I'm going to be getting into this, there was a great sense of satisfaction! I've stored them in the back of the pantry for the meantime.
Easy and good! I left mine for about a month before eating and they are very tasty! A real taste of home. Thanks!
Just took these out today after 2 months in the fridge. They are so good! I put in a mashed garlic clove and one red chili in each jar, too. Thanks, FT, for this one. Great!
