pickling problems

lestblight | Apr 16, 2013 09:30 AM

so i was making pickled red onions and i noticed they got a lil soft.. didnt have much bite after sitting in the brine.

The onions were fresh but i wonder if the boiling vingear cooked them too much,

Should i let it cool before incorporating the brine? or should i add some calcium chloride to help keep them fresh?

thanks alot!
