Pickled Red Onions

Pickled Red Onions

Serves: 4

Recipe #1 Ingredients:

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/3 cup seasoned rice vinegar

Recipe #1 Directions:

  1. Put the red onion in a mason jar and add the vinegar.
  2. Put the top on the mason jar and let sit for 1-2 hours, until the onions soften (overnight is ideal).
  3. Store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Recipe #2 Ingredients:

  • 1 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar or additional white vinegar
  • 1 ½ tbs maple syrup or honey
  • 1 ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes (optional, for heat)

Recipe #2 Directions:

  1. Pack the onions into a 1-pint mason jar or similar heat-safe vessel. Place the jar in the sink, to catch any splashes of hot vinegar later.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the water, both vinegars, maple syrup, salt, and pepper flakes. Bring the mixture to a gentle simmer over medium heat, then carefully pour the mixture into the jar over the onions.
  3. Use a butter knife or spoon to press the onions down into the vinegar and pop any air bubbles in the jar. Let the pickled onions cool to room temperature (about 20 to 30 minutes), at which point they should be sufficiently pickled for serving.
  4. Cover and refrigerate leftover pickled onions for later. The pickled onions are best consumed within three days, but they keep for 2 to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
