Pickled onions are incredibly tasty and a versatile way to prep your meals. Unlike regular onions that are crunchy and full of odour, pickled onions provide a sweet and crispy taste. When you bite into them, the flavours come out and adding them to salads, sandwiches, and soups make them pop out more. Cutting the onions up and using vinegar for pickling works but you can also try out other ingredi ... ents. When your first learn how to pickle onions, be sure to refrigerate them. This will make them last longer so that you can use them later. Before you start the pickling process, cut the onions into thin slices and work your way slow. Thinner slices help in absorbing the vinegar. If you don't want to use store-bought vinegar for pickling, you can use organic Apple Cider Vinegar instead. For sweetening your onions you can go with honey or maple syrup. We suggest using natural sweeteners always and agave syrup is an option too. Store your pickled onions in a mason jar and do a taste-test before serving it to the kids. If it's too sweet, you can balance out the flavours using a blend of exotic spices.
