Very often in salads needed pickled onions. Each time to cook it - boring. Isn't it better to stock up in advance???
To select the bulbs for pickling (a medium size). Boil water, put the onion and problanshirovat for 2-3 minutes. Then quickly cool in cold water.
After contrast baths onion peeled from the outer scales and 30 minutes to hold in salted water. Until the onions once again taking a bath, prepare the marinade. FOR THE MARINADE NEEDED 6% VINEGAR. How to make it from the existing 9%??? THERE is a VERY PRACTICAL CONVERSION FORMULA of VINEGAR, 250*6/9 (250 multiplied by 6 and divided by 9) 250 - the required amount of vinegar in the recipe 6 - the required percentage of vinegar 9 - existing percentage of vinegar. Using this formula, it is easy to determine how much vinegar is needed. In our case, you need 160 g of 9% vinegar. Back to the marinade 250 ml water and 160 ml of 9% vinegar to boil. Add 2 tbsp salt, sugar to taste and spices - cinnamon (pinch), red pepper powder - pinch, 5-6 peas allspice, 3-4 buds cloves and a few Laurel leaves. Set of spices on your taste. Unable to change something, and you can not add at all.
The marinade is boiling, the boil for 3 minutes. Drain the water from the onions and pour the hot marinade. I have it all done in a saucepan. When the marinade has cooled, put the onions in a jar, poured the marinade, cover and refrigerate. That says it all. Use on health!!! And refill a bow like that without problems. This recipe was lying by me since time immemorial. And then suddenly there was and it's about time!!! :-D :-D :-D
