  • These sound delicious! Curious if the quick pickling method would work with this recipe? Love your podcast as well. Started listening at the beginning of quarantine and have made it through all the episodes and have enjoyed many recipes as a result.
    Keep up the good work!

    1. You could certainly make this pickle as a fridge pickle instead of processing it. And thank you for the kind words about the podcast!

    1. You can omit the sugar, but it will leave the finished pickle unbalanced. I like your idea of using coconut sugar.

  • Question about red onion for this recipe. Our red onions seem to be HUGE. are we talking a medium sized one for this?
