 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         red onions
                         water -- boiling
    1      cup           vinegar
    1      cup           water -- cold
    1      tablespoon    pickling spice
    1      teaspoon      sugar
    1      clove         garlic -- sliced
 Peel the onion and slice into thin rounds.  Separate the rounds and put them in a
colander large enough to hold them comfortably.  Put the colander in the sink.
 Bring about a quart of water to a boil, and  pour it over the onions, letting it
drip right through the colander.  Transfer the onions to a bowl and add the
vinegar, cold water, spices, sugar, and garlic.  If the onions aren't coverend by
the liquid, add more as necessary, using equal parts water and vinegar.  Cover
with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cool, and the color is diffused, about 30
minutes.  Keep in the liquid, refrigerated, and use as needed.l
