The onions are great for topping a pulled pork sandwich and bold enough for brisket as well.  Reduce the amount of jalapeno to a couple of slices if you do not like heat as using 1-2 jalapenos makes them very spicy.



  • 1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Red Onion
  • 1 Large Clove Garlic
  • 1.5 tbsp White Sugar
  • 12 Jalapenos


Using a mandolin, slice onion on the thinnest setting.  Slice jalapenos, thicker, about the width of half a pencil.

Stuff onions, jalapenos, and the clove of garlic into a small jar; you want it to be as packed as possible.

Combine vinegar and sugar, stir to dissolve sugar, and pour into container.

Leave in the refrigerator for 5 days.  Shake a flip jar once a day.  It will remain fresh for a month.
