Such a fabulous addition to any dish, concoction or grazing plate.

Being a little fussy and focused on the quality of produce and products I’m always on the hunt for products with no hidden nasties, preservatives, additives, seed oils and added sugar … and it’s not always easy.

When it comes to pickled onions it’s no different, there are loads of brands on the market but very few without nasties.

So … here is a brilliant, delicious and super easy solution … ‘Easy Peasy Pickled Onions’.
