Obviously the best way to store pickling onions is to pickle them! However if you would like to keep them for use in stews of casseroles, remove them from any packaging, particularly if it is plastic film and store in a cool, dry place.
What could be more British? A ploughman's lunch, some crusty home made bread and some crisp crunchy pickled onions. We supply excellent quality British pickling onions throughout October and up until Christmas. The crops are grown in Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Suffolk and are specially selected varieties to give that crisp texture and tangy flavour. For a real pickle treat, why not push the boat out and pickle our onions in some tangy Aspells Cider Vinegar? Our pickling onions can be purchased from Waitrose when in season.
Pickle in malt or white vinegar with pickling spice or scatter whole onions round your favourite Sunday roast.
The British onion season for pickling onions starts in September and runs through until Christmas. The onions are harvested, cured and then placed in controlled atmosphere buildings to maximise quality throughout the storage period. We are always striving to extend the British season for as long as possible but never at the expense of quality.
