Prep Time:5 mins
Rest Time:30 mins
Total Time:35 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion cut in rounds
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vinegar I used a combo of distilled white and apple cider
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes optional

Instructions

  • Slice the onion and place in a heat-proof container.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved. Turn off the heat.
  • Pour the liquid over the onions and press them down with a fork.
  • Cover and allow to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Serve immediately or cover and place in the fridge. These are best served within the first few days, but will keep in the fridge for a couple weeks.
