Week 24- Pickled Onions


Hi, and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen. A warm welcome to any gardeners who would like our recipe for their home grown shallots. They are in the supermarkets now and here is our very simple foolproof recipe for Pickled Onions.


1 lb (450g) SHALLOTS


3 teaspoons allspice

1 teaspoon Black Peppercorns


Boil vinegar and spices in saucepan. Leave to get cold.

Make sure jars are clean and dry with air-tight lids. Do not use metal lids. If you have one use a Kilner Jar.

Peel the shallots, take off outside skin and one more skin. Immediately put in jars, pour over malt vinegar and spices and cover and seal tightly.

Store for 6 - 8 weeks in cool,dry place.

Delicious with Ploughmans Lunch - A hunk of bread, cheese, pickle and your own Pickled Onions.
