Almost as easy as making tea! I used cider vinegar and a little extra tabasco. 5 stars for simplicity and 6 stars for flavor even after a few hours let alone a few days. Do yourself a favor and make two pints of these because they won't last long once they are on the table. Thanks for posting - I love pickles! SA UPDATE ON THIS: My friend Patty tasted these onions and swiped the whole jar for her hubby.............

Very simple and delicious. I made as stated but with regular yellow onion and I cut two of them rather than 1/2 of one large onion. I used the cider vinegar. I agree that this could use more hot sauce but that is easily corrected. I let it marinate for 2 weeks and voila! Will use in recipes or on sandwiches, etc. in the future. Also, just sweet enough but not too sweet. Thanks for posting, Chief Teer, I enjoyed this one!

These were good but I've made other pickled onions that I liked better. These were a little too crunchy still for my taste but the flavor is good, though I thought it could be improved with some herbs and maybe some mustard. I did like them better when added to something (a grilled cheese sandwich this time) rather than just out of the jar. I'm glad I tried this though! Thanks for the recipe!
