Pickled red onions
  • Prep: 15 Mins

  • 100ml red wine vinegar
  • 100ml water
  • Pinch sea salt

  • Measure out your peppercorns, sea salt, sugar, vinegar, and water into a small pan. Simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Leave to cool. This is your pickling liquid.

  • Pour the cooled pickling liquid and peppercorns to cover the veg – top up with a splash of water if needed.

  • Seal the jar with the lid, leave to cool fully, then refrigerate overnight before serving. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
