Spring Challenge Day 28-Red Onion Pickle

Red Onion Pickle

2 to 3 Red onions, cut into thin half-moon slices

1/2 Cup Umeboshi plum vinegar

Juice of 1 lemon

1/2 Cup mirin


Bring a large pot of spring or filtered water to a boil. Quickly blanch the onions by dipping them into the water and immediately draining them. Pat dry and place into a bowl. Add the vinegar, lemon juice and mirin and stir gently to combine. Set aside for 45 minutes to marrinate before usuing. This light pickle will keep, refridgerated, for several days in a sealed jar, in it’s pickleing liquid.

I have a pickle press, so I used it with this recipe. These onios are great on beans, in a salad or sandwitch.
