Sweet & Spicy Pickles

Also, try these super simple Sweet and Spicy Pickles to spice up salads, sandwiches, pizzas.  Whatever.  Pickles are great supporters of healthy digestion, helping to break down fats, and stimulating salivary and stomach acids to break down food more efficiently.  I was craving pickles during my Master Cleanse, so I am happy to finally indulge in sour foods again.

One large onion (you choose: red, sweet, yellow, white).  Halve and slice thin

2 cups vinegar (I use Apple Cider Vinegar, but red wine is also suggested)

2/3 cup sugar

2 jalapenos or other pepper/chile of your choice.  Stemmed, seeded, and cut into thin rings

1/2 teaspoon salt (I use sea salt)

Place onion in heat-resistant bowl.  Dissolve sugar in vinegar with peppers & salt over medium heat.  Pour over onions and let cool to room temperature.  Once cool, drain some liquid and put onions in large jar.  I also make this with cabbage, carrots, cauliflower and ginger.  I eat some of this at every meal.
