The art of pickling: all you need is some great, fresh ingredients and a refrigerator! We have one of those items, so let’s help you with the other. We found a great way to start the pickling process with inspiration from lenaskitchenblog.com. She says it only takes about 10 minutes to prepare, and once the recipe is completed, just refrigerate the items for a minimum of four hours.
Here’s her suggestion for pickling onions– the same recipe also works for thinly sliced cucumbers, radishes, matchstick carrots or cabbage, but Lena suggests adding garlic cloves, fresh dill and a bay leaf for the cabbage.

2 cups water
1 ½ tbsp sea salt
