Pickled Red Onions


Pickled Red Onions

I love having a jar or two of pickled red onions in my refrigerator.  A lovely pink condiment that will add extra crunch and tanginess to any salad, burger or taco!  Be creative and change up the spices to suit your fancy.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup ACV
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp peppercorns
  • ½-1 tbsp xylitol or other sugar substitute (swerve, erythritol)
  • 1 tsp oregano

 

Directions:

  1. Peel and thinly slice the onion.  I prefer half moon slices but you could also slice into full rings.
  2. Add onion, garlic, peppercorns and oregano to a mixing bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring vinegars, water, salt and sweetener to a light boil over medium heat.
  4. Pour hot liquid over the onions and stir.
  5. Allow to sit on the counter for about 1 hour.  Gently stir several times throughout the hour.
  6. Transfer onions to a glass jar (I used two smaller jars).
  7. Store in the refrigerator.  They will keep nicely for several weeks.
