Pickled Maui Onions

Print Friendly and PDF
Here's another pickled Maui onion recipe that is easy to make.  It resembles rakkyo, Japanese pickled scallions, in taste.  Be sure to use Maui or a mild white onion which is less pungent and sweeter in flavor. You can serve this alongside fish, hamburger, steak or as an appetizer, just by itself.

2 medium Maui onions, sliced
1-1/2 cups water
3/4 cups distilled white vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
3 cloves garlic, crushed
Dried hot red chilies, to taste
1 T salt

Place the sliced onions in a wide-mouth 1-quart (or larger) jar.  Boil the water, vinegar, sugar, garlic, chilies and salt in a saucepan.  Pour over onions and let cool.  Chill 3 days or up to a month.
