With the festive season just over 2 months away now is the perfect time to start making pickled onions. These make a simple and tasty accompaniment to any meal and are the perfect ingredient to liven up salads.
Ingredients
  • 750g Pickling onions
  • 3 Tbs Salt
For the Spiced Vinegar
  • 750ml White wine vinegar
  • 110g Sugar
  • ½ Tsp Coriander seeds
  • ½ Tsp Mustard seeds
  • 12 Tsp Black peppercorns
Instructions
  1. To start, top and tails the onions. Place the onions in a large heat-proof bowl and pour boiling water over them until covered. Allow these to stand for 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. After this time the skins will slip from the onions with ease.
  3. Transfer the skinned onions to a dish cloth and pat them dry.
  4. Place the onions in a clean, dry bowl and sprinkle the salt over them. Cover the bowl with cling-wrap and allow these to stand for at least 8 hours, preferably overnight.
  5. The following day, combine the sugar, coriander seed, mustard seed and black peppercorns. Place these in a pot along with the white wine vinegar. Bring this to a boil, lower the heat and allow it to simmer for 30 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, unwrap the onions and rinse the salt off with cold water. Transfer the onions to sterilized jars.
  7. Strain the vinegar mixture through a sieve. Place the jars of onions in a pan of hot water and pour the vinegar solution into the jars until the onions are covered.
  8. Close the jars and allow them to cool in the pan. Once cooled, place the jars in a cool, dry place to age for at least 2 months before opening. After opening the jars, they should be stored in the refrigerator.
