I was browsing through some of the blogs I follow and came across this recipe on www.acouplecooks.com. I love onions and have been craving vinegar-y flavors so WOW did this sound good. My hubby went wild over it and now has the idea that I will make enough to go in those big pickle jars. Hmmmm....he may have a good idea.
I initially made them wrong (I didn't pay full attention to what I was doing) and used 1 c. of the vinegar instead of 1/2 c. I like the full cup better. I also never added water so it was full strength but it was wonderful as is, so I am not messing with perfection.
