I’ve been making this recipe for many years. My husband’s favorite side dish. If you want to impress anybody special, this is the dish to make. I recommend leaving this recipe alone.
serve 6-8 people
• 2 pounds pearl onions
• 1 cup dry sherry
• 1/2 cup green raisins
• 1/4 cup honey
• 1/4 cup water
• 2 tablespoons butter ( for Vegan Diet use Earth Balance spread)
• 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
• 2/3 cup toasted slivered almonds
• 4 teaspoons red wine vinegar
• salt and pepper to taste
1- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add onions, and cook 3 minutes to
loosen skins. Drain, and cool slightly. Cut root ends from onions. Squeeze onions at stem end (onions will slip out of skins).
2- Combine pearl onions, sherry, raisins, honey, water, butter or
margarine, and thyme in a heavy large skillet. Bring to a boil over
medium-high heat. Reduce heat to very low, and cover. Simmer until
liquid evaporates and onions begin to caramelize, stirring often, about
3- Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat. Can be
prepared 6 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.
4- Warm over low heat before continuing. Stir almonds and vinegar into onions. Add a few teaspoons of water if mixture is too dry. Serve warm.
