Quick Pickled Sweet Onions

"I use these in egg salad and on toast and on pickle trays and, sadly enough, I eat them right out of the jar. The pickling solution is really concentrated so they only need about 1 day before they're good, but a week makes them perfect."

ingredients

directions

  • Bring all ingredients except onions to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and gently boil for one minute.
  • While mixture is boiling, cram onion rings into a glass jar as tightly as you can. Don't worry if the rings break. This is not a pretty pickle.
  • Remove boiling mixture from stove and pour directly into the jar. Allow bubbles to rise to the surface, then refill as needed leaving 2cm headroom.
  • Screw lid on gently and allow to cool on counter top.
  • Once cooled, refrigerate for up to one month.
  • This is not a sterilized pickle. Do not store unrefrigerated!

    Yummy onions. I'm using 1 pint mason jars to make this, and when I pack the jar with either one large (or two medium) onion(s), I find I only need about half of the liquid portion to fill the jar up. Consider reducing the liquid portion in half if all you're making is one jar.

    I found this i a local newspaper last year and just made it over the weekend. Let me tell you how good they are. I don't normaly eat raw onions, but these were great. Everyone should try these.
