Brad's Pickled Onions

Brad Nichols


An awesome flavor fusion of classic British pickled onions with a minor jalapeno kick! This recipe makes 7 pint sized bottles that will keep for 2-3 years. These go great with savory stews, roast meats, and medium to full cheeses! I hope you like them as much as we do!!!
