Recipes using Spiked Cherries
Pickled Red Onions
- 2 red onions, thinly sliced
- 1.5 cups each ACV + red wine vinegar
- 1 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 T salt
- 1/4 cup Spiked Cherry juice
- Bay leaf
Combine the vinegars, lime juice, sugar, cherry juice, Bay leaf, salt, and 1 cup water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook, whisking a few times, until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes.
Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Put the onions in a mason jar (or reuse an old pickle or another glass jar), and pour the brine over the top.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 48 hours before serving.
Use them to top sandwiches, protein bowls, or add them to a meat & cheese board!
Keep in the fridge for up to 3 months — if they last that long!
