  • Stuff onion slices into a pint-size Mason jar. Pour some of the boiling water over the onions. Let rest for 10 seconds. Pour out water through a mesh strainer, keeping onions in the jar. Repeat twice more to cook onions slightly.

  • Measure vinegar into a bowl. Stir in salt and sugar until dissolved. Add peppercorns. Pour vinegar solution over onions. Seal and shake well.

  • Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving so that the flavor develops.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute kosher or pickling salt for the sea salt if preferred.

Substitute cider vinegar for the white wine vinegar if desired.

I loved these. Wanted to try a partial batch before committing to a full jar. Wishing I'd have made the full recipe. Easy enough to make more. I used them on pork carnitas. Will be good with so many things! Read More
