Pickled Red Onions
photo by lundelldt
- Ready In:
- Blanch 2 sliced red onions in a small saucepan of boiling water to cover for 1 minute and drain in a colander.
- Then return them to the pan and add a cup of cider vinegar, a teaspoon of salt, and just enough cold water to barely cover the onions.
- Bring to a boil over high heat and simmer the onions 1 minute.
- Transfer the onions and brine to a glass jar and chill.
- The onions will turn the color of a pink piñata and will get crisp as they cool.
- They'll keep for weeks in the refrigerator.

This was really good. :yummy: Mine doesn't look as pretty though. I expect because my slices weren't uniform, but I doubt it made any difference to the taste. Oh...I also threw in some peppercorms...just a few. These went really well with the recipe #222371 we had tonight. Thanks for a great recipe. *UPDATE* Aug 23/08 Made again today. Actually, I probably make this every second month or so. This is always in my fridge. Such a terrific recipe. Everyone should give it a try. I was a little disappointed that it can't be 'canned', but it's so easy and quick to make it really isn't a bother at all. This time I added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and 15 grinds from the pepper mill! Thanks again Juenessa
These are wonderful and so easy to make! I did toss in a few crushed red pepper flakes to satisfy our craving for heat. Right after they cooled, I made a sandwich of your recipe #213870 and topped it with these onions. SUPER! These will find a permanent home in my fridge. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
What a great way to serve this wonderful vegetable! The onions are delicately flavourful and very pretty. DH had his as a side with baked chicken legs, and insisted that there always be a jar in the fridge. I had mine with baked chicken breast, but added a dollop of sour cream and lots of fresh ground black pepper. Thank you for a real taste treat. Can hardly wait to try them on a corned beef or liverwurst sandwich!
