Honey Fermented Red Onions

Sharing is caring!

Last Updated on October 20, 2020 by Renee’

My daughter loves the pickled red onions that are on the Panera Salad that she gets. Well, I wanted to make them healthier so I decided to ferment them with honey. I already ferment Red Onions with a salt brine for salads but she likes the sweetness of the ones at Panera. I’ve fermented garlic before so why not onions?

They turned out so good. She’s begging for more.

Health Benefits:

Raw Honey contains antioxidants (flavonoids & polyphenols), and helps to naturally reduce inflammation in the body. Raw Honey has antibacterialantiviralantiseptic, and antifungal properties, and has been used throughout civilizations as both food and medicine.

What you’ll need:

  • Red Onions
  • Raw Honey (Very important that the Honey is Raw preferably local) I’m lucky that my dad has bees & we always have raw honey. 
  • Optional- Garlic Cloves
