How to Make It

Step 1

In a 1 1/2- to 2-quart pan over medium heat, combine vinegar, salt, sugar, cloves, chili flakes, bay leaf, and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, peel onions and pull off any thin membrane under peel. Trim root ends.

Step 3

Add onions to vinegar mixture and simmer, stirring occasionally, until just tender when pierced, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature, about 1 hour. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a serving bowl; discard liquid.
