Again, I keep it simple. Apple cider vinegar, salt, sugar, and warm water. You'll have to experiment with combinations to achieve the taste you are looking for (or that appeals to you).I asked because last time i used pickling spice and i dont think i am going to this time.Sorry. I meant before you put them in a jar to store them. Incorrect use of terminology.By "before you pickle them" i assume you mean adding pickling spice?I've pickled red onions in a mixture of sugar, salt, warm water, and apple cider vinegar. Mix it up and lest the onions rest in it for an hour before you pickle them. They've normally come out very tasty. And last for a few weeks in the fridge.Need some help guys.
We are doing a "12 days of Christmas" at work. People double up and bring meals every day.
Me and a buddy teamed up. I am making smoked ham sliders with a pineapple aioli and pickled onions. He is pairing it with potato soup.
I have tried pickling onions before(panera bread turned me on to it) and it didnt turn out too well. They stayed too crispy and were too oniony. That was even after resting in the fridge for a couple days..
I am thinking maybe i need to cook the onions a bit? I did last time but only for a couple minutes in a skillet. Maybe cook them until they are almost soft?
Just make sure to slice the onions really thin. Invest in a good mandoline slicer. Not a cheap one.
I slice the onions up and leave them to sit in the mixture for an hour in a large ceramic bowl before I put them in a jar.
I would stay away from any specialty spices.
