Pickled Onions

I made pickled onions with malt vinegar 3 months ago, refrigerating them to cure. I just tested one and find it very hard. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be this crunchy. I don't think I can talk my husband into enjoying these.
I'm thinking I can repurpose them in a boeuf bourguignon if I have to.
Happy New Year to all. Flo.

Not sure why you refrigerated them.

Crunchy is good. The usual query is why they went soft.

The recipe called for refrigeration after macerating on the counter for two days.

Pickled Onions

I was hoping at the time that Delia had a recipe online as I trust her recipes but, unfortunately, she only had sherried shallots. On rereading that recipe, I should have been guided by her instruction to put the pickle in a cool place, not a refrigerator as my recipe indicated. Lesson learned.

Gerry the vinegar flavor is not that intense so I thought of cooking the onions separately, throwing off the water a few times. I wouldn't use them if I thought they would ruin the bourguignon, especially considering the high cost of beef.

Flo's pickled onions

I didn't know they weren't that vinegary. Still wouldn't risk it with anything as delicious as Delia's Boeuf Bourguignon. I've tried pickled onions once only and don't like them; they were really harsh with vinegar.

Pickled onions

Pickled a few lots of onions in my time. I actually prefer shallots and use white vinegar. Nice and crunchy.
