  1. I finally got around to trying this and loved them. They also looked so beautiful in the jar. I was out of cider vinegar so used the white that I had and it worked fine. I bought some cider vinegar to make another round. Great recipe and so easy!!!

    • The longer they sit the prettier the vinegar gets from the purple onion. I’m so glad you liked them! Thank you for letting me know. It makes blogging so worth it!
