    Kim D.'s Note:

    Posted this recipe as a request on the message board. I found the recipe in the "Blueberries and Polar Bears" cookbook. The recipe suggests serving this with "beef or Jalaneo Goose, or on top of a beef sandwich the next day!" I guessed on the serving size, because it wasn't given.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Slice the onions very thin and place them in a plastic or glass dish.
    2. 2
      Combine the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt.
    3. 3
      Mix well to dissolve the sugar and salt.
    4. 4
      Pour over the sliced onions and mix well.
    5. 5
      Put a plate on top of the onions and set a weight on it.
    6. 6
      A plastic bottle of oil and vinegar works well.
    7. 7
      Let the onions sit on the counter all day- overnight is best.
    8. 8
      Drain the onions (You will wonder where all the liquid came from!).
    9. 9
      Combine the dressing and celery seed and toss with onions.
    10. 10
      Put in a serving bowl and serve.

      Very tasty. I did wonder where all the liquid came from. Don't be dumb like me and use a 5 lb bag of flour for a weight. (it was sitting there handy...) The bowl was chock full of onions with maybe an inch of vinegar mix. Next thing I knew, the flour was swimming in vinegar. (Where's my sign?)

      I used white onions and followed the recipe. I put the mixture into a zip-lock bag left it a few inches un-zipped, set it into a bowl in case of overflow, there was none. I let it marinate over night. WOW!!! I thought what does this taste like? Then it dawned on me, sweet pickles but with an onion taste. I later added thinly sliced celery for extra crunch. I think these onions would work like a "top secret" special ingredient in potato salad! Shhh! It's our secret lol!
