This recipe illustrates wet brining, in which the onions are covered with a brine solution to remove their surplus water. Use ordinary table salt and spiced vinegar (above) which has more flavour than plain vinegar. Cauliflower florets can also be pickled in this way. Store for 3—4 months before using.
