Pickling Mercer-Style

Pickling Mercer-Style

Pickling is an easy time tested method for intensifying the sweet and sour ends of the flavor spectrum and in doing so escalating overall flavor. Pickled onions are an excellent example of this technique. To begin carefully remove the papery skin of your onion, in this case cipollini onions. Taking care not to be wasteful. After peeling slice the cipollini onions into thin rings. Remember once the onions are pickled they will lose a little bit of their volume. To pickle the onions you will need to heat up a sugar and vinegar mixture. We'll add some spices and aromatics for extra flavor. Combine all the ingredients for your pickling liquid turn it up to a boil an pour it over your sliced onions. The pickles will pick up strong sweet and sour notes from the sugar and vinegar. To intensify the color you can add a large slice of red beat to the mixture when it is hot.

Overall User Rating: Mercer M20003 Genesis 3 1/2" Forged Paring Knife with Full Tang Blade ( 4.8 stars from 12 reviews )

    This is my favorite and least expensive multipurpose paring knife in my collection. The length of both the super-sharp blade and the tang/contoured handle (3-13/16") provides a good balance and control for peeling, slicing, and small intricate work like deveining shrimp and garnishing.

    This paring knife is 3 1/2 inches which I think is a great size for a paring knife. Many paring knives come in a little smaller size but I get more use out of a 3 1/2 inch knife. As always, The Westaurant Store had the lowest price I could find. The comfortable rubberized grip and sharp blade allows for greater precision for delicate tasks. A must have in any kitchen.

    I have other mercer knives and this one isn't much different from those. Made from quality steel and the knife has a nice weight to it for how small it is. Very sharp and great quality for the price!

    After considering the multiple purchases required for the kitchen at my new place I didn't want to go overboard with high quality everything initially. Bought these as a stand-in but six months later they are still going strong and are my primary paring knife go-to.

    The blade on this knife is forged, which was a nice surprise. The bolster and handle are joined in a way so there is no gap, which makes cleaning them a breeze. They are nicely balanced as well and are all around great knives.

    Fantastic knife for the price! I cut myself twice in the first week because it is so much sharper than my other paring knives. I always reach for this knife first.

    I see a lot of people dropping many dollars on paring knives without need. This is an awesome paring knife; good weight, great grip, and holds an edge.

    What a great paring knife to have in any kitchen, whether at home or at a food service operation. It's great for small tasks that are too small for a chef's knife.

    This pairing knife is great for cutting up garnishes and peeling potatoes! The blade is razor sharp and it holds its edge for months at a time! SO cheap too!

    Everyone needs a paring knife in their kit. And this is the one to have!! Perfect for delicate operations such as fluting or a tourne potato.

    This knife is very nice, the metal is very high quality, the handle is provably my favorite thing because it is as big as a chef's knife.
