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 M20405 Genesis 5" Forged Utility Knife with Full Tang Blade ( 4.5 stars from 4 reviews )

    We love this knife! It is a light blade with a nice weight in the handle and the blade is super sharp. We have since bought extras to give as gifts for other home chefs. Another excellent product at an unbeatable price.

    Amazing knife for cutting small veggies and other items. This and the Mercer Genesis 6" Forged Chef's knife with full Tang Blade are my "go-to" knives for pretty much everything. I don't think you can find better knives (quality, weight, sharpness) for the price

    I can't say enough good things about the Mercer genesis line. Are they the best knives money can buy? No. Are they an incredible deal? Yes! There is a reason most culinary schools have students purchase these knives...value. If your looking for knives to throw around the kitchen and bang out prep, these are a great alternative to the more expensive brands/lines. At these prices they are practically disposable.
