Several jars I expect Linda everybody loves pickled onions , I don't know why but my granddaughter always calls them Christmas onions ...

We only had pickled onions at Christmas....a very long time ago Amy. They were considered a treat.

Perhaps that why Linda our Granddaughter lived up North for the first few years of her life ...

I love home pickled onions. You can't buy anything like them. It's worth the streaming eyes I reckon.

wow, you have quite a crop there Amy. That should last you a long while. Pickling? Sounds good.

I had a good harvest of normal onions and just dug up loads of garlic which I have drying off in the greenhouse like your shallots. I will try shallots next year Amy, feeling spurred on by your success.:-))

Poppy you can pickle layers of ordinary onions in slices in vinegar good for a tasty sandwich or burger ,I often slice cucumber with it as well ..

Hi Amy. Try using an electric fan while you are preparing the shallots to blow the fumes the other way.
