Great onions! They pack a nice punch of flavor, great alone or complimenting other foods. Thanks for sharing! Culinary Quest '14

Spot on! These are great and so easy to do. I told DH that they keep for 3 weeks and he looked at me picking at the bowl and said "Not likely". lol. I'm going to hide them at the back of the fridge because I know that they will just improve over time. Thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest 2014

Delish! Love the marinating liquid and red onions are my absolute fav. I had to use a mix of white & black peppercorns which also had allspice added to them. Along with the cinnamon, it will be a great flavor combination. Made for the Culinary Quest - Russia 2014.
