Sassy Pickled Onions

These onions will NOT need to be chopped every time you need them and they save in the fridge for a month!

Pickled onions are a great addition to salads, sandwiches, sauces, dressings, and relish trays. They are very easy to make and yet expensive to purchase!

Onions are harvested in southwestern New Mexico this time of year. There are huge semi truck loads on the freeways daily. So, this is a good time to think about using onions. One way to use the fall onion harvest is this old country dish.

Many countries rely on the pungent with a hint of sweet onion to add some zest to their foods. Here is a way to NOT have to chop an onion every time you make a salad or a sandwich. What could be nicer?

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 30 servings or more

Ingredients

  • 1-2 onions (medium= 2, large = 1), quartered then sliced
  • 1/4 C. Water
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 1 C. white vinegar
  • 1-2 T. salt, less for refined salt
  • 1/8 t. chili/red pepper flakes
  • 1/8 t. garlic powder
  • 1/4 t. salad seasonings

Easy Prep.

  1. Use a clean ball canning jar and pour bowling water to fill jar and on the jar lid and seal. Since this will be saved in fridge you will not need a new lid and seal (like you would in long term canning)
  2. Peel and quarter the onions and then slice the quarters. Pack the onions down in the jar. Use a skewer to help pack the onions down
  3. Cover onions with boiling water. Let stand for about 5 minutes and pour out the water.
  4. Mix the ingredients above. Pour over the onions. Use the skewer to break up any air pockets. Seal with the lid and rotate the jar a few times.
  5. Store on the counter at room temperature for one day. Place in fridge for three days. They are ready to use after three days.

Very good in salads, on a relish tray, or eaten out of the jar over the sink.
