Ingredients

8 cipollini onions (borettana) 220 g
2 tsp butter, unsalted 9 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1 tbsp sugar 12 g
1 tbsp wine vinegar 15 mL
1/4 cup water, approximately 65 mL
salt [optional]

Before you start

For best results, use the Italian onions known as cipollini (round-shaped, flat, about 3-4 cm in diameter). If they are not available, you may replace them with pearl onions.

Method

  1. Clean the cipollini as you would clean regular onions. Leave them whole.
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the cipollini and sauté 2-3 min, stirring gently, until lightly golden. Add the sugar, vinegar, and about 2 cm of water.
  3. Cook over medium heat, uncovered, about 10 min, until the cipollini are softened. If too much liquid is remaining at the end, reduce it over high heat and caramelize the cipollini. Serve.

Remarks

Cipollini may be prepared in advance and let stand at room temperature, to be warmed up in a few minutes just before serving.

I'll have to try this with the cipollini...I still had pearl onions and it was good, but I have a feeling it'll be better with the onions specified. Also think this would be interesting tossed with mushrooms.
