2 cups apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons pickling salt
3 pounds red onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons mustard seed
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Prepare a boiling water bath and 3 regular-mouth pint jars. Place the lids in a small saucepan, cover them with water, and simmer over very low heat.

Combine the vinegar, 1 1/2 cups water, sugar, and salt in a pot over high heat and bring the brine to a boil.

Add sliced onions to brine and stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium and simmer briefly to soften onions.

Meanwhile, combine the remaining spices in a small bowl and stir to blend. Add the spic blend to the sterilized jars, distributing evenly.

Using tongs, evenly divide the onions between the 3 jars. Pour hot brine into each jar, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Gently tap the jars on a towel-lined countertop to help loosen any bubbles before using a wooden chopstick to dislodge any remaining bubbles. Check the headspace again and add more brine if necessary.

Wipe the rims, apply the lids and rings, and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

Let these pickles cure for at least 48 hours before eating.

Makes 3 1-pint jars
