Pickled Onions

6 posts in this topic





Pickled onions make a great addition to a LOT of dishes.  I personally like adding them to a pulled pork BBQ sandwich or even a good cheeseburger.  Try this easy recipe for a nice tangy picked onion!


  • 1 medium red onion, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 1 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 10 allspice berries
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Break apart your onion slices into rings or strands, whichever you prefer.  In a 1 pint mason jar, add the vinegar and seasonings and shake to dissolve salt and sugar.  Stuff in the onion rings or strips and cap the jar and let sit on the counter for an hour before putting in the refrigerator.  These will keep for 3-4 weeks in the fridge.

I tweaked this recipe into something I like slightly better....


  • 1 large red onion, sliced 1/4″ thick
  • 3 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 20 black peppercorns
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp pickling spice

I put the vinegar, salt, and sugar in a mixing bowl and stirred to dissolve the salt and sugar.  I put the rest of the ingredients in a quart mason jar and added about a half cup of the liquid to the jar... I sliced my onions on the mandolin and then cut the rings into half ring strips... stuffed them all in the jar and poured in the rest of the liquid to fill the jar.  I let that sit out on the counter for a couple hours at room temp and then tossed these  in the fridge.  These are great on sandwiches and I am serving them on pulled pork sandwiches at work tomorrow night....

@John Setzler what change did that tweak do to the flavor?


I never could get the spice level where I thought it was just perfect so I took out the red pepper flakes.  It's a tad sweeter with this blend.
