Pickled Red Onions

Want something to add some spice to sandwiches, hamburgers, salads, or any other food. If you love onions raw or grilled, here is a new twist. Check out this easy recipe from http://www.loveandlemons.com


  • 2 small red onions
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup cane sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt


  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon mixed peppercorns


  1. Thinly slice the onions (it’s helpful to use a mandoline), and divide the onions between 2 (16-ounce) jars or 3 (10-ounce) jars.
  2. Place the garlic and peppercorns in each jar.
  3. Heat the vinegar, water, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Stir until the sugar and salt dissolve, about 1 minute. Let cool and pour over the onions. Set aside to cool to room temperature, then store the onions in the fridge.
  5. Your pickled onions will be ready to eat once they’re bright pink and tender – about 1 hour for very thinly sliced onions, or overnight for thicker sliced onions.
  6. Once you make them, they’ll keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
