What do you pickle in the middle of winter? I want something fresh and bright, but not if the produce is shipped from 5000 miles away. Inspiration came in a bottle of home-brewed stout combined with onions, vinegar and spices. Viola. Winter pickles.
Pickled Red Onions are super easy to make, but they can wake up a plate of food like nothing else. Put them on tacos, sandwiches, salads, hot dogs and hamburgers. These are spiced with whole pickling spices and jalapeno peppers.
