How To Make Crispy Pickled Onions

via Steve’s Kitchen

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Wait Time: 4-6 weeks

Crispy Pickled Onions Instructions

Top and tail and peel the onions and place them into your pickling jar.
Add the pickling spices and pour in the malt Vinegar.

Close the lid tight and then turn the jar upside down on a saucer (just in case there is any leakage) for about a week.

This allows the top onions to get fully immersed in the vinegar and start to be infused.

Turn the jar the right way up and store for a further 3-5 weeks. Store your pickled onions in a dark spot and allow them to mature.
