If there is one thing I love it’s a fun condiment. I don’t remember when I started making these but they have become a summer favourite for burgers and tacos. Particularly with me and my dad. Making this pretty purple burger topping is simple and you probably have everything you need in your kitchen right now.
You will need:
One large red onion
White wine vinegar (about 1/2 cup)
1 tsp sugar
Jam jar with lid
Disolve 1 tsp of sugar in 1/2 cup of white wine vinegar. I have use white wine vinegar as well as apple cider vinegar and both work just fine.
Next thinly slice the onion into rings. It’s up to you how thin to cut them. Think about what you want to eat them on and slice accordingly. I am terrible at slicing them consistently so my jar has all widths in there.
Separate the onion into rings and put into a colander. Boil a full kettle of water (maybe about 3 or 4 cups) and when boiled, slowly pour the water over the onion in the sink. Shake to remove excess water from your colander. This will soften up the onion lightly and make them much easier to stuff in your jar.
While the onion is still hot stuff into your jar with some tongs. Or your bare hands if you are feeling adventurous. Fill it up nice and full.
Slowly fill the jar with the vinegar sugar mixture and put the lid on nice and tight.
In about an hour they take on that pretty purple colour and are ready to eat. They should last a few weeks but they never make it that long around here! Enjoy!
