Pickled Red Onions
These tasty onions lose all their pungency in the pickling process but gain a sweet sharpness that makes them a great last minute addition to any salad. They’re a multi-purpose condiment and are delicious with any type of fish.
1 cup sugar
1 cup red wine vinegar
A sprinkle or two Salt and Pepper
Pour the sugar and vinegar into a small pot and bring to a boil with the salt and pepper. Pour the hot syrup over the onions; cover them and let rest overnight in the refrigerator before use.
Because sugar and vinegar are such great preservatives, these pickled onions will last indefinitely in your refrigerator. They’re at their best after a day or two in your fridge, once their flavours have had a chance to mature.
