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.

    Stronger than most knives. Very rigid and stiff, which is amazing on vegetables, and works like a really big pairing knife. This is exactly the kind of job I needed it for and it functions perfectly! Another hit from Mercer.

    Loved my Genesis 8" knife so much that I purchased the 6" Mercer chef's knife too. They are both good knifes and used almost every day where I work.

    This is a great knife! We bought it for our personal use, and have used it daily since purchasing. It's heavy enough to do the tough jobs, but it doesn't fatigue you to use it. The size is just right, blade doesn't have watermarks after washing, and it's extremely sharp!

    This line of knives from Mercer are very exceptionally priced for the quality they deliver! I currently own the Genisis 8" Chef's Knife and the Genesis 8" Usuba, both are perfectly balanced with solid weight which creates a wonderful hand feel and delivers great stability while making cuts. I use these knives for pretty much everything on a daily basis and have yet to find any complaints. While exceptionally sharp out of the box, they are also very responsive to sharpening and honing after continuous use making them just like new again. These knives are real work horses and are very reasonably priced. I DEFINITELY recommend this line of knives to anyone who needs a comfortable, sharp, and durable utility knife that is perfect for home or commercial use!

    I ordered this knife a few days ago and it just arrived. It has immediately become my "go-to" knife! The handle has a solid weight to it and it cuts like a dream. I will definitely be ordering more and trying other knives from the same product line. Great job Mercer!
