    Pickled Red Onions

    1 Lb. red onions
    4 cups boiling water
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    --or unseasoned rice vinegar

    4 1/2 cups water
    3 tablespoons honey or sugar
    1/2 to 1 teaspoon pickling salt

    Peel the onions and slice them as thin as you possibly can.

    Transfer them to a medium-sized bowl.

    Pour the boiling water into the bowl, and let the onions soak in the boiling water for 5 minutes.

    Drain thoroughly in a colander. While the onions sit
    in the colander, combine the marinade ingredients
    in the same bowl, Mix well. Stir in the onions, and let them sit in the marinade for 10 - 15 minutes.

    Transfer the onions with all the liquid to a jar with a tight-fitting lid, and chill until very cold.
