@Louisa OK, a couple of years ago (back when I was on .social) you posted a recipe for pickled red onions and I wrote it down, and subsequently misplaced it. I found this one online and it seems similar to yours except that they did not heat the brine. Are the proportions roughly correct? I remember your recipe being outstanding.


@deneb I just use sugar, water, and vinegar and then let is sit in the fridge for a bit.


@deneb Ok, so for a medium onion, I would use ~1/2 tsp sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, and about 3/4 cup of vinegar (white, apple cider, or even rice). Then I would only add enough water to cover if necessary. But it is optional.

@scully Okay, I will try it. Do you heat the brine?

@deneb I do not heat the brine. It can make it easier to dissolve the sugar and salt, but it isn't necessary.
