I love pickled anything. Eggs, grapes and now these delicious easy pickled red onions.
You can pickle anything really, by just adding some spices and vinegar to the objet and simmering for a minute.
These onions were delicious with leftover brisket and mixed in with my tuna sandwich. On a hamburger or grilled cheddar cheese. They make everything better.
They keep for a month or so in the fridge, and take only a few minutes to make.
Pickled Red Onions: (adapted from many different recipes)
2 medium size red onions, peeled & sliced thin
3/4 cup cider vinegar
5 whole cloves
1 bay leaf
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
dash of hot pepper flakes
Add the sliced onions, vinegar, spices and sugar to a stockpot and simmer for a minute, until the onions are blanched and the sugar and vinegar dissolve. Transfer to a glass bowl or jar.
Place in the fridge until ready to use.
See how easy that was?
