Quick pickled red onions, and why we follow other bloggers

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Once you have been blogging for a while, 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.

Sweet, sour and delicious, Original Quick Pickled Onions.

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 to visit and 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 pickled 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.....

Easy and delicious, Original Quick Pickled Onions.

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 saucepan, bring to a boil and let simmer until sugar is dissolved.

How to make, Original Quick Pickled Onions.

Add onions, stir once or twice, remove from heat (do not cover) and let sit 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 deglazing the pan for a quick sauce. I am sure you will come up with some great ideas too.

  1. Great idea to pickle your onions already diced. It's kind of a duh, but I hadn't thought of it either!

  2. I've never made picked onions, you made it sound easy enough.

  3. Excellent recipe, Melynda--and pretty too. Thank you so much for the shout-out! --Rocquie

  4. Didn't you love them!! I've made them so many times now. I used to skip raw onions in any of my salads, now I just sub these! Thanks for the mention!
