Diva In The Kitchen: Quick Pickled Apples and Onions

This is another Rachael Ray recipe.  These go fabulously with the Pork Chops with Beer and Bacon Gravy.  All the flavors meld together so well.  Very tasty!  You could make this for any pork dish or put it on top of grilled pork to add something special.

2 green apples
1/2 lemon
1 small to medium red onion, very thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped dill
1 teaspoon salt
About 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups cider vinegar
4 fresh bay leaves
1/2 teaspoon whole black peppercorns

Quarter the apples then cut away core and thinly slice. Add them to a medium bowl, douse them with a little lemon juice and add the onions and dill.

In a small pot over medium heat add the vinegar, bay leaves, peppercorns, salt and sugar. Stir and heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Pour evenly over the apples and let stand 20 minutes, turning occasionally. Serve or cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
