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.

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.
