Sous Vide Pickled Red Onion

Anova Culinary

We always have pickled red onions in our studio fridge. We put them on sandwiches, salads, patés, and sometimes even eat them straight from the jar. So we love that now, with the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker, and a little vinegar, sugar, and salt, we can have pickled red onions in just 30 minutes. These will keep in the fridge within an air-tight container for up to one month.
