    1      Each          Gallon Pickling Onions
    1      Cup           Pickling Salt
    1      Cup           Sugar
    5      Cups          White Vinegar
    3      Tablespoons   White Mustard Seeds

 Scald the onions for 2 minutes in boiling water, dip into cold water and peel. 
Sprinkle the onions with the salt, add cold water to cover, and let stand for 12
hours or overnight.  In the morning, drain the onions, rinse them in cold fresh
water and drain again.	Combine the sugar, vinegar, mustard seeds, and
horseradish or peppercorns, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes.  Pack the
onions into clean jars.  Add 1 small hot pepper and 1 bay leaf to each jar, fill
the jars with boiling-hot liquid and seal. Makes 5 - 6 pints. NOTE: You can also
add 6 T whole allspice or 1/4 c mixed pickling spices for interesting variations.
