Easy Pickled Onions

I found this recipe and as I had a heap of red onions I made them. They are just fantastic, and they still have that real onion flavour. I think I will be making a lot of these.

How to Make Easy Pickled Onions

  • 2Combine vinegar, water,sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk together until sugar and salt is fully dissolved.
  • 3Place onion in a jar. Pour the mixture over the onions and let sit at room temp for at least 1 hour if in a rush. Preferably, cover jar and place in fridge for at least 1 day.

    Pickled onions will last a few weeks in the fridge.
