Pickled Onions

June 25, 2010 at 2:03 pm Leave a comment


Today’s recipe is brought to you by a mistake at the grocery store. I bought a bag of Vidalia onions instead of the yellow variety. You can use Vidalia’s to cook with, but why bury and waste the sweet flavor. This condiment is a great addition to any salad or sandwich.

All measurements are approximate and can be varied to suit your own tastes.

2-3 medium onions (red, yellow and in this case Vidalia, even pearl)
1 cup white vinegar
1/3 water
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt

Optional: peppercorns, bay leaf, chili peppers, garlic slices, pickling spice

Slice onions very thin
Add all ingredients into a non-reactive pan and heat until boiling

A microwave can be used. Use a glass casserole and zap for about 4 minutes on high

Let sit until it comes room temperature. Place in a glass jar and store in the fridge for over a month

On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
