Pickled Red Onions

These have quickly become one of my favorite condiments.  I love them piled up on a burger or a pork taco, or used as a beautiful garnish. These will keep for weeks in the fridge –  I store my pickled onions in a glass mason jar.
2 red onions, thinly sliced
1 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. granulated sugar
Blanch red onions in a small sauce pan of boiling water for 1 minute; drain well in a colander.  Return onions to sauce pan; add vinegar, salt and sugar, plus enough water to just barely cover onions.  Bring to a boil over high heat, simmering for 1 minute.  Remove from heat and let cool. Transfer onions and brine to a glass jar and chill.  Onions will turn bright pink and will crisp as they cool.
