  1. rochelle haynes says:

    I love onions but never had them pickled

  2. I have soaked my read onions in vinegar for a few hours to top a salad but nothing like this. This is so much better than what I have been doing with very little effort.

    Can you let me know how long this will keep in the fridge? Thanks!
