Pickled Onions

6 lb small yellow onions, peeled
6 c salt, pickling
30 c water

1 1/2 c sugar
7 1/2 c cider vinegar
3 ts allspice, ground
3 ts cloves, whole
3 bay leaf

Scald onions for 2 minutes in boiling water. Drain and place in
cold water and peel. In a large bowl, stir half of the salt into
half of the water until the salt has dissolved. Add the onions.
Cover the bowl and leave the onions to soak for 12 hours.

Drain the onions, discard the brine and wash and dry the bowl.
Dissolve the remaining salt in the remaining water and pour it
over. Cover bowl and leave for a further 36 hours.

Drain onions and pack them into clean, dry preserving jars. Set

In a medium sized pan, dissolve the sugar in the vinegar over low
heat, stirring constantly. When the sugar has dissolved, add the
allspice, cloves and bay leaf and bring the vinegar to a boil. Boil
mixture for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Cover the
pan and set aside to cool. When vinegar is cool, pour it over the
onions to cover them completely. Seal the jars and store them in
a cool, dry place.
