    2 medium vidalia or red onions
    3/4 Cup of Water
    1/2 Cup White Vinegar
    1/4 Cup White Sugar
    1 Tbsp Honey
    1/2 Tsp Mustard Seeds
    1/2 Tsp Coriander Seeds
    1/2 Tsp whole fennel Seed
    1/2 Tsp Celery Seeds
    1/2 Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
    1 Bay Leaf
    1/4 Tsp Sea Salt

    1) Slice onions in thin 1/8 slices or as close as you can get to it.
    2) Combine all ingredients in a non-reactive pot, except the onions and bring to a boil, simmer for about 3 to 5 minutes. Keep the liquid in the pot and allow it to cool it cool for about 30 minutes. Refrigerate.
    3) Bring a pot of water to boil, then remove from stove and drop the onions in for about 10 seconds. This is called blanching. Quickly drain the pot into a colander and run cold water over the onions for about a minute to shock them and rapidly stop the cooking process.
    4) Place the onions in a clean jar and cover them with the cool liquid. Refrigerate for 5 days before using, and keep refrigerated.

    I call them that because I usually only eat them with my barbeque.

    I do something like that... Every year I make a bunch of pickled mangoes and as the mango gets eaten and the pickling jus remains we'll
    put onions in them and they are very good as well!
