The flavourings are versatile too so you can add whatever aromatics you like.


  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 tsp black peppercorns
  • 1 tsp dried dill, or a small bunch of fresh dill (optional)
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp salt
  • 1 cup white vinegar



  1. Place onions and garlic in a large glass bowl or jug with the dill.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the rest of the ingredients and stir until the salt and sugar has dissolved. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover the onions with the pickling liquid, submerging them and stand to cool to room temperature.
  3. Once at room temperature, you can place your pickled onions into a mason jar or any glass jar you have. Do not use metal jars as they will react with the pickles. You can keep them in the fridge for 3-4 weeks.
