    I've pickled onions in the past but they've been ones I bought. This year I've grown my own, but I'm not sure if I have to dry them first or can I pickle them straight away?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks.

    No need to dry. Slice and pickle!
    Try them pickled with slices of cucumber.
