 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      teaspoons     salt
    1      large         red onion -- peeled and sliced
      1/4  teaspoon      black peppercorns
      1/4  teaspoon      cumin seeds
      1/2  teaspoon      Mexican oregano -- dried
    2      cloves        garlic -- peeled and halved
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/3  cup           cider vinegar
 
 Bring 2 quarts of water to the boil in a saucepan, then add 2 teaspoons of salt
 and the onions. Bring back to the boil and boil a few seconds, until the onions
 have softened slightly and the red color has bled into the white. Drain, and

 Coarsely grind the peppercorns and cumin, and fold into the onions along with
th
 e rest of the ingredients. Add just enough cold water barely to cover the
onions
 , and fold all together. Let stand for at least 4 hours -- or longer, until
they
  take on a beautiful pink color.
