    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.

      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!
