Make It Monday: Refridgerated Pickled Red Onions


Ingredients needed: 2.5 pounds of red onions, 1 C apple cider vinegar, 1 C water, 1 tsp. sea salt, and 1 T evaporated cane juice.


Starting cooking your brine on the stove top. Combine all ingredients (except the onions) in a pot over med-hi heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to cool slightly.


While your brine is cooking, slice our red onions thinnly. I used a mandoline slicer, but you could use a knife if you can slice thinnly enough. Pack the onions in pint jars. I fit 2 1/2 pounds in 3 pint jars.


Pour slightly cooked bring over the top of onions to the cover them completely. Allow to refrigerate for 24-48 hours before serving. Use within 1 month.

With the upcoming grilling season you are going to love offering these at your table. I really love putting them on sandwiches and hoagies too!

This looks fabulous -- and easy! I'm sure it's cheaper than buying jarred pickled onions and tastes better too. Thanks for a great recipe.

How about this is something I never would have thought of doing at home, although it seems easy to do and would jazz up a lot of spring and summer lunches/dinners. Cool idea!

We love onions over here and I get tired of slicing and cooking them almost everyday. I am going to have to try this.

We've always made a type of pickled onions, but never used red onions. Don't know why I didn't think of it!

I love pickled onions. I esp. love the ones I find in the Asian markets that are made with pearl onions. :)

I have used them for a few months afterwards and thought they still seemed good but use your own judgment.
