We decided to try our hand at pickling a few different types of onions. Like our garlic they looked like a few of them were starting to get a little mouldy so we pulled them up early to save what we could and binned the rest.
Here are the results
We made 3 different onion variations: Chilli Shallots, Balsamic Onions, Traditional pickled (red) onions. The picture also shows some pickled beetroot we used a basic pickling recipe for this too.
My favourite is definitely the balsamic onions. The others are ok but maybe a little acidic. Next time I think we will add a little sugar

At the weekend I got busy baking a loaf of courgette and mushroom bread. It was very tasty! I recommend it to anyone with a glut of courgettes. I only needed to add half of the amount of recommended water and needed quite a bit more flour whilst kneading. So you might wish to bear that in mind.
