Pickled Red Onions

Earth Angel Vegan’s Pickled Red Onions….  We love these onions.  Our favorite way to eat them is on a pita with hummus!  They are fabulous on sandwiches and salads too!  They are super easy… give them a try!

1 pint mason jar

hand held strainer

1 red onion cut into strips

2 cups boiling water

1 teaspoon of sugar

1 teaspoon of salt

rice wine vinegar


Put the salt and the sugar in the bottom of the mason jar.  Cut the onions into strips and place them in the strainer.  Slowly pour boiling water over the onions.  After you have poured the boiling water over them and the water has drained off… put the onions in the mason jar on top of the salt and sugar.  Fill the jar with rice vinegar to cover the onions.  Put the lid on tight and give them a shake.  Let them sit on the counter for about an hour… the vinegar will turn pink.  Put them in the refrigerator… they will last for a couple of weeks.  They are not “canned”  so you cannot put them on a shelf… they must be refrigerated.
