Pickled Red Onions

🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
12 1.02 hours

🧂 Ingredients

  • 2 small red onions
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp mixed peppercorns
  • 2 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 0.33 cup cane sugar
  • 2 Tbsp sea salt

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 mandoline
  • 2 16-ounce jars
  • 1 medium saucepan

📝 Instructions

Step 1

Thinly slice the red onions (it's helpful to use a mandoline), and divide the onions between 2 16-ounce jars or 3 (10-ounce) jars. Place the garlic and mixed peppercorns in each jar, if using.

Step 2

Heat the white vinegar, water, cane sugar, and sea salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat. 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.

Step 3

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. They will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
