Ingredients

  • 1 pound cippolini onions
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400° with rack in middle.
  2. 2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add onions and boil 1 minute. Transfer with a slotted spoon to a bowl of ice water. Let stand 1 minute, then peel using a small knife.
  3. 3. Melt butter and oil over medium-high heat in a large (12-inch) ovenproof skillet until foam from the butter subsides. Sauté onions until browned (about 5 minutes). Carefully add balsamic vinegar (it will splatter a bit), water, honey, rosemary, bay leaf, salt, and pepper, and bring to a simmer. Transfer onions with liquid to oven. Braise, uncovered, until onions are tender and liquid is syrupy (about 1 hour). Remove bay leaf before serving.
