Pickled Onions question

korbo, Mar 24, 5:18am
I have my onions in the brine since 10. 30am this morning,
recipe says leave overnight. just found out something on tomorrow, could i do them tonight. wont get a chance to do them until tomorrow night, if not done tonight.
how many hours do recipes mean by *overnight*. thanks

The brine stops them going squishy later.
If you eat them quick enough do it now.
If not, leave it 48 hours, won't hurt.

thank you. no wont eat them fast, as still have a jar of shop ones to eat first, then have gerkins, then pickled cucumbers, so will leave them until tomorrow...

made them this arvo, so far so good, only trouble, the old recipe i had of mums said 1. 1/2 bottles of vinegar. NOW had to think hard and work out what size the bottle was. I just assumed it was the 750ml one. anyway, all done, and will wait a month or so to taste.

I use 1 cup of sugar to 2 cups of malt vinegar.

just looked at my jars, and they have a few small bubbles, kinda like when something is fermenting. is this normal for pickle onions. ? ?
the recipe said just to drain the onions and pack in jars. thanks.
