To be fair, I haven’t tried pickled onions since I was a kid, so who knows what I think of them today.
But I would never have planted, watered, and weeded pickling onions; I would never have spent a day prepping, brining and canning them for myself.
No, all that work was for my son.
He’s never had pickled onions, but I think he will adore them. He eats the garlic cloves from the bottom of the dill pickle jars, and loves onions in every form.
So the pickled onions are for him. I’ll be curious to try them myself—maybe I’ll like them, too. Seeing how pretty they are in the jars, I wouldn’t mind an excuse to make them again next year.
