Pickled Onions


by: 123Chef

Pickled onions are a national treasure - everyone loves them. They are eaten with fish and chips, on a Ploughman's Lunch, pies, and many other savory dishes. There are hundreds of commercial varieties but nothing beats a jar of homemade pickled onions. Tiny pickling or buttons onions are available in the autumn and if prepared and stored are perfect by Boxing Day to eat with cold meats or pork pie.
