Pickled Cocktail Onions

Fresh pearl onions give this classic pickle the crunch you can’t get from the frozen stuff. Add these tangy pearls to your cheese platter or drop one into your next martini!


1 10-ounce bags white, red, and gold pearl onions, trimmed and peeled
3 whole cloves
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
Zest of half a lemon, peeled into strips
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt

Special equipment: 1-pint jar


Add onions, cloves, fennel, coriander, and lemon zest strips to a jar. In a small saucepan, combine water, vinegar, sugar, and salt, and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the brine into the jar to cover the onions. Let cool. Seal the jar, and gently flip to mix all the ingredients together. Store the jars in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
