Pickled Vegetables

Ingredients

  • Red Onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • White Wine Vinegar (or vinegar of your choice)

Method

Step 1

Start by slicing the red onion as thin as you can. Red onions will give you that bright red pop – but you can also use a firm white or brown onion as well. Once sliced, just stuff them into a glass jar.

Step 2

In a seperate jug combine enough vinegar to top the onions (use a quality pale-colored vinegar like a rice vinegar, white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar as you’ll find bulk vinegars to be to harsh a flavour). Add a little sugar and salt to balance the vinegar brine, top with warm water to dissolve, give it a stir and your done.

Step 3

Now just pour the pickling mixture over your sliced onions and let them set for an hour. After an hour, I’ll cover them and stick in the fridge.
