If I want pickled onions with my Boxing Day cold Turkey, I have to make my own. The French don't go in for such things, and imports are exhorbitantly expensive.
Jeez, my eyes were stinging, and my nose running; pain before pleasure is the norm with these babies. But in a few weeks they'll be delicious, and my Christmas will be complete.
24 hours in brine, then a month in a sweet spiced vinegar, and Voila!
But, Oh the pain of peeling the little blighters.
