I fear to this question that there really is no 'right' answer. But yet I must ask it anyhow.
Is my husband's grans recipe for pickled onions better than my Aunt's recipe for pickled onions?
It has been an on-going arguement or shall I say 'discussion' in my house for as long as the phrase pickled onions was muttered between my husband and I.
We have both had the honour of tasting both recipes and we are at a complete and total stalemate. So this summer, I pickled over 90lbs of silverskin onions and am now going to officially ask one of you readers to be the tie breaker.
One recipe uses white vinegar and cinnamon while the other recipe uses malt vinegar and pickling spices. Which is James' grans recipe and which is my aunt's? I can't tell you that for fear it would sway your taste buds opinion.
Now all you need to do is volunteer to be the tie breaker and what will happen next will surprise and delight you. If you are randomly selected, I will deliver (via post or in person) a 500ml jar of both versions of the pickles and all you have to do is try them over and over again repeatedly until the jar is empty or pretty darn close to it. At this point in time, all I ask is for you to tell me your thoughts about each and whether or not you have a preference. I would never put you in the uncomfortable position of having to choose one over the other. Unless of course, one is so much better than the other that you have an obvious favourite.
Sound like something you and your tastebuds could handle? Well then, just comment below or on my facebook page and the rest will be down to chance.
