Pickled Kielbasa

This is a tasty snack I serve up with other pickled meats, pickled eggs and a cheese tray. This usually goes over quite well at potlucks.

1 pound kielbasa
1 small onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons pickling spices

Place half the chopped onion in a 1 litre mason jar.
Slice your kielbasa into 1 inch thick rounds, slice across the middle then toss into the jar.
Top with the remaining onions.
Place the vinegar, water, brown sugar and pickling spices in a saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer while stirring until sugar is dissolved.
Pour the liquid over the kielbasa and onion, making sure everything is covered.
If need be, top with some more vinegar.
Allow to marinate refrigerated for 1 week before eating.
This will keep for 2 months while refrigerated.
