Wow!!  :o
Maybe I need to come live with you for a while Norma before I move in with Jon!   :drool:
I notice you like a lot of Greek food too; that stuff is soo tasty and makes you feel like you are eating healthy too at the same time.  :chef:

Bob,

I would like to be able to move in with Jon and eat all of his great looking food.  ;D  I do like Greek food a lot, but then I was married to a Greek man at one time, so I did get to eat a lot of Greek food and that made me like Greek food more.

Bob,

It is good to hear that the Greek folks took you in like family during a time when you really needed it.  8) I also agree Greeks make great food.

Speck fontina and arugula sandwich. Next time I would add pickled red onion or something but still a tasty combo!

That's a pretty good one, I would leave out the jalapeño though. Regular old distilled white vinegar.

I use what is basically the recipe from the Zuni Cafe Cookbook. If you're into cooking it has some amazing recipes. Some are a bit involved (pickled red onions) but it is a fantastic cookbook. The roast chicken recipe alone is worth the price IMO.

Thanks Jeff!   Anyone else....white, red, cider vinegar? Rice wine?  Anyone I shouldn't use...think I'll just make up some comparison batches; hell it's only some onions.  ;D

I use Maui sweets... slice in eighths leaving the root end so they don't fall apart.  I brine with half/half water and vinegar (rice or white), sugar to taste, whole black peppercorns, and salt.  They keep in the refer for a few weeks.

Thanks Steel, are you saying to cut it like one of those steak joint "blooming onion" thingies and then submerge it in your brine?

No, slice it all the way thru but don't trim the root end first... that way each slice holds all of its sections, layers.  I'll make some tomorrow and post pics.

Thanks, I got it now. This way will not require such a big container/brine solution.  ;)
