These are pickled onions, New Zealand style, with a thick pickling sauce and a curry taste. It's powerful!
My late mother used to make this receipe we all loved it. I have made it this week and cant wait for them to mature. - 21 Jan 2010
I gave this recipe a go and while the wait was long it was worth it! The batch was eaten in about 3 months and remained absolutely fantastic however I wondered how I could use the remaining pickling sauce .....well I marinated BBQ lamb chops for a day and all the flavours were there including the long gone onions and the lamb was not over-powered in the slightest. Still have enough sauce left to try it on beef or chicken,.. maybe pork? So give this a try...waste not want not and really worth it! - 25 Feb 2015
I made them last year for my Mum's birthday and they have just finished them. My step-father loved them so much that it's the only thing he has asked for for his 70th birthday. Thank you for sharing. - 21 Mar 2013 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
