    I've bought pickled onions in the store many times. But a small jar cost 3.00
    So.........

    Basic recipe.
    Whole small onions. Pearl onions are the best.
    1 tsp pickling spice
    1/2 tsp dill seed
    fresh dill
    1/4 tsp Alum
    Above items go into a quart jar.
    For the brine I used 2 cups cider vinegar with 1 tbs pickling salt.
    Once the brine got boiling. I added 2 tbs of Balsamic vinegar into the jar. For color.
    Then topped of with the brine.
    Vac sealed and resting.

    Heck yeah! Gotta love some pickled eggs, onions, pickles, pigs feet and more.

    I'm halfway or more through my last batch of Hot Pickled Eggs, I'd start another but have a lack of fridge space.

    I meant to have the title say "Pickled onions" Sorry about that. Can a Mod correct that?

    Thanks for the recipe, I see you’ve been busy pickling lol!

    I like pickled onions. I usually pickle sliced red onions to use as a topper for salads, burgers and tacos. There’s a jar available at all times

    I was thinking about doing that as well. They might even give a extra zing on pizza.
