Fall is cooking season.
It’s my favorite.
I open all the windows and flood the room with fall air. I sing to the radio much too loud, keep the stove running all day, and I fill the air with some of my favorite smells- pumpkin, chili, bread, pasta, pie, jam, pickles, everything!
Unfortunately, you can feel fall in the air but daytime temperatures haven’t dropped. It’s too hot to spend countless weekend hours over my stove.
These refreshing pickled onions are the perfect solution for fall days that aren’t ready to let me stay in a hot kitchen all day. They give you a chance to enjoy the beauty of fall cooking without melting in the kitchen.
These pickles have the potential to brighten up just about any meal, my favorite of which are spicy venison tacos. Add to salads, hot dishes, and if you’re feeling really dangerous- try them plain!
- 1 red onion
- 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 1 t. sea salt
- 1 t. raw sugar
- 2 cups apple cider vinegar
- Boil a pot of water.
- Slice the onion into rings and place the onions into a colander.
- Once the water begins to boil, pour over the sliced onion.
- Transfer the onion into a jar. Add the thyme, salt, and pepper.
- Pour the vinegar over the onion. Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for an hour.
- Refrigerate and enjoy over the next month.
I’m guessing fall has crept into your kitchen too, what are some of your favorite recipes?
