I’ve never felt like more of a Portland cliché than when I found myself making my first batch of pickled onions. If you’re unfamiliar with the show, Portlandia, they put together a little skit poking fun at the pickling and canning obsession that had swept through the city. When I pulled up 50+ baby red onions from my garden a few weeks ago, I found myself saying, “I can pickle these!” and then face palmed my forehead, realizing that I have become so very Portland in my three years here. All clichés aside, these tangy little suckers are delicious! We’ve now tried them on burgers, brats, steaks, and salads and it adds a great zesty flavor to the dish. Try out a batch for yourself, and soon you’ll find yourself hooked!
