Once you have been blogging for awhile, eventually you run out of new and distinctively different (from any and all previous posts) recipes. Then throw in the problem of liking something so much that you do make it often, but you have already blogged about it, and should your readers/followers/friends remember, well now that could be a slight problem.
Add in family preference, time constraints, pantry ingredients (or lack of, maybe it is time to shop.....), finding the camera and then remembering where you actually saw the recipe you want to make, means that some days, blogging does not get done. One thing that we bloggers do, is follow other bloggers. This can be for inspiration, hello Carolyn or because you really really like their recipes, hello Rocquie or because you dislike what they dislike, like raw onions, hello Pam.
Today we are making quick pickles onions. I have made pickled onions before, and they were really good. That recipe also many steps and since this is a holiday weekend, I think easy is definitely in store! Oh and one other thing, when I made pickled onions before, they were not diced. And then I noticed that I pretty much chopped them up, each and every time they were used. Let's make this easy for future times too, let's pickle them diced.....
Quick Pickled Onions
adapted from: sidewalk shoes
makes 1 pint (or so)
1 large red onion, diced
3/4 c white or cider vinegar
2 t salt
3 T sugar
1 bay leaf
2-4 whole cloves (use what you prefer)
Combine vinegar through cloves in a medium sauce pan, bring to a boil and let simmer until sugar is dissolved.
Add onions, stir once or twice, remove from heat (do not cover) and let set until room temperature. Pour contents into a pint jar, cap and place in your refrigerator.
Add to salads, sandwiches, toss into a pan when you are de-glazing the pan for a quick sauce. I am sure you will come up with some great ideas too.
