Quick-Pickled Vidalia and Red Onions

  • yield: Makes one 1/2-gallon jar

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon mustard seeds
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3 cups white balsamic vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 Vidalia onions, peeled and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 2 red onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 fresh bay leaves
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Wash one glass 1/2-gallon jar with a lid in hot, soapy water, and rinse well. Toast coriander in a small skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add mustard seeds and toast for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Set aside.

  2. Step 2

    Combine water, vinegar, salt, and sugar in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook until sugar and salt have dissolved. Add reserved coriander and mustard seeds; remove from heat, and set aside.

  3. Step 3

    Fill jar halfway with either Vidalia or red onion slices. Add bay leaves and thyme; cover with remaining onion slices, packing them with the back of a clean spoon. Leave 3/4 inch of space beneath the rim. Pour hot liquid over onions covering them by 1/4-inch and leaving 1/2-inch of pace beneath the rim. Place lid on the jar, and let stand until cool. Store in the refrigerator, serve within a week.
