Bread & Butter Pickled Onions

I have found a new love!

6 medium onions
1 cup white vinegar
2 quarts water
1 Tbsp. sat

Pickling Mixture:
2 cups white vinegar
2 cups sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
3 Tbsp. mustard seed
1 Tbsp. celery seed
1/4 tsp. curry powder
Peel onions, cut in half crosswise, then into 1/4-inch strips. Separate onions into strips and place in a bowl, covering with brine mixture. Let stand several hours or overnight. In a 4 or 5 quart saucepan, combine pickling ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Boil 2 minutes. Remove the onion strips from brine, draining well. Add them to the hot pickling mixture, leaving 1/2 inch headroom before sealing with 2-piece lids. Store in the refrigeration for a week, allowing flavors to blend. (It stores well in the fridge). Makes about 8 half-pints. Great on sandwiches!
