I have done sugar & it can be nice if a subtle thing!
You don't want to overdo any of the flavours & if you don't like Juniper, leave it out for sure
I use half balsamic in caramalised onion chutney for that very reason
Hi British Red. Can I ask a question please? You mentioned in the video something about the different kinds of malt vinegar. I'm about to buy a gallon as I always do of the brown malt non brewed but I think you said something about this not being the best for pickling as it is acetic acid and caramel. I noticed that is what it said on the container . I've always used it but I'm always looking to improve the produce I make.
Sadly I'm about to run out of Internet on my phone. . My only access to you tube and it uses it like crazy.
Would you recommend I hold off and buy something else or use it anyway. Thanks
NBC does work but if you look for "malt vinegar" its very cheap in most supermarkets!
I am REALLY sorry, but it's been a very bad day....
From a "previous life" I recall "NBC" being "Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (warfare)" - nuke the onions ?
Again, sincere apologies
Its explained in the video Simon. NBC is an acronym for Non Brewed Condiment. Its made from acetic acid, caramel and water. In effect its synthetic vinegar.
Ahhh, my long departed Godmother, her pickled onions and marmalade were such as I have never tasted or made the equal of.........three onions and a slab of stand pie, what better lunch over Christmas ?
Needs a lump of cheddar too!
And some crusty bread and Branston pickle
Write it all down. I read (above) what's in error with most families everywhere.
Somebody dies with the family favorite recipes in their head.
This alone was the main driver for me to type up a digital cookbook to break that tradition.
Shared only within family including edits every few years.
NOT recipes that I call "nice-to-have" or the others: "you-should-try-this." Not a snowball's chance in Hello.
Pickled onions could become one of my essential food groups very quickly.
Are they good with liver and bacon?
Best with cheese, crusty bread and cold cuts. Used as a bit of acid crunch with cold meat, sausage rolls etc.
Bick's is a brand of pickled cucumbers here. Sweet & Sour, Dill weed and so on.
They sell a mixed chop of pickled things. I confess thast I use a lobster pick to eat all the pearl onions first.
BR, you're right = it's that pop of a crunchy bite that's the best.
Pickling is universal, but the taste varies with culture. Hugely.
I prefer the Waitrose ‘luxury’ p. onions.
Too lazy to do my own.
Son makes fantastic Pickled Baby Octopus!
