I love pickled onions in all the variations and so I am going to share a great recipe which I like to make to use up bulk onions when I have them or buy them. This is a curry, sweet-sour kind of pickled onion and it takes 4 days to make.
For this recipe you will need:
1- 1.5kg onions
1/2 Cup Salt
2 Cups white wine vinegar
2 Cups water
2 Cups sugar
3 tsp Curry powder
1 tsp Peppercorns
Day 1: Slice the onions very finely, place in a bowl and cover with salt. Stir to cover all the onions, and then cover with a lid allowing to stand.
Day 2: Pour off liquid and rinse the onions thoroughly, place back in the bowl. Place all other ingredients in a pot and bring to the boil. Pour, still hot, over the onions and cover. Allow to stand.
Day 3: Pour the liquid back into a pot and bring to the boil again. Again pour, hot, over the onions and allow to stand.
There you have it.
Great to eat with cheese, raclette, or if you are like me, consume on their own - yummy :)
