Pickle Onion mistake made?

Reply Wed 12 Aug, 2020 05:19 am
Hi, I am new to pickling and this year i grew my own onions and decided to pickle them, i did however forgot to put the sugar in, and realised about a week later and then opened the jar and added the sugar. I am no worried I have ruined the pickling process by opening the jar before the 4-6 week period, have I ruined my pickles? Any advice welcome. Thanks!

I’ve never known a pickled onion recipe to include sugar. The only ones I’ve used involve soaking the onions in brine for 24 hours before using pickling vinegar.

I don’t think the sugar affects the pickling process at all, but the only way to be sure is to try them. If they smell or taste funny I’d throw them out.

As long as you used 'unrefined' sugar (Cane, balm or sucrirogen) it'll be fine.
Opening is irrelevant - Oxygenisation is non-encumbering in a converse acido-domain.
Unless you urinate/sweat therein - Becomes alkaline (Hydrochlorinates).

Have a lovely day

I would toss them - botulism is nothing to play around with. See: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/botulism/symptoms-causes/syc-20370262
