How do You Make Pickled Green Onions? 

Step One: Cut the green onions to be about an inch and a half in length. They can be as long as you like, but make sure they are not too long because the top of the green onion will be submerged in the pickling solution.

Step Two: Fill a jar with your cut and cleaned pieces of the green onion until there is about one inch left at the top. Be careful to slowly pour out any excess air bubbles as you go along so that all ingredients are fully submerged.

Step Three: Prepare the pickling solution by mixing your vinegar with some salt and whatever spices you desire (we recommend turmeric, garlic powder, dried dill weed, or fresh dill). The amount of each ingredient will vary depending on how much brine solution is needed to cover all ingredients in the jar. You can also experiment with different pickling spices to find a flavor that is unique and delicious.

Step Four: Pour the pickling solution into the jar until it reaches about an inch from the top, leaving room for expansion once you put in your refrigerator. If there are any remaining ingredients left over after filling up your jar, pour them down the sink or keep them for later use.

Step Five: Secure your jar and put it in the refrigerator, where it will need to sit for about three days before tasting good enough to eat. The pickling solution may be eaten after just one day of sitting, but green onions taste best when they are allowed to marinate longer than that!
