The waning gardening chores and the rapidly ripening veggies has me in full “put ‘em up” mode. Several found recipes later and we have pickles and relish... oh yeah. This short and (very) easy list can all be done in one day.
Fermenting onions in a salt brine turns onions into a slightly sweet, mildy tart and far less pungent treat to use in cooking or on top of salads. Plus, raw fermented onions don't give the eater the same lingering bad onion breath.
Crisp slices of red onion are marinated in a mixture of citrus juice, white wine vinegar, salt, pepper and allspice until tart and tender. Charred jalapeño and bay leaves are added to the mix to bump up the savory spice factor.
