 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      small         red onion -- peeled and sliced
                         -- 1/8-inch thick
      1/4  teaspoon      black peppercorns
      1/4  teaspoon      cumin seeds
      1/2  teaspoon      dried oregano -- preferably mexican
    2                    garlic cloves -- peeled and halved
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/3  cup           cider vinegar
 
 Blanch the onion slices in boiling salted water for 45 seconds, then
 drain and place in a medium sized bowl. Coarse grind the peppercorns
 and cumin in a mortar or spice grinder, and add to the onions. Add the
 remaining ingredients plus enough water to barely cover. Stir well and
 let stand for several hours until the onions turn bright pink. Covered
 and refrigerated, the onions last several weeks.
