  • Summary

    These pickled onions are sharp, sweet and refreshingly acidic. We use a combination of fresh lime juice and apple cider vinegar. You can use just one acid, but we’ve found the combination adds a touch more complexity. There’s a lot of elbow room when it comes to adding spices or additional flavors. We use cinnamon sticks, cloves and red pepper flakes. Keep it clean and simple and add none or add a combination of the following: cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, crushed red pepper flakes, whole garlic, star anise, bay leaf, mustard seeds, fresh ginger slices, fennel seeds, coriander seeds or cumin seeds.

    Ingredients

    • 2 medium red onions, halved and thinly sliced
    • 2 cinnamon sticks
    • 6 whole cloves
    • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
    • 1 cup (240 ml) apple cider vinegar
    • 1/2 cup (120 ml) freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 1/4 to 1/2 cup (50 to 100 grams) sugar
    • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
