2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound pearl onions (red and white), peeled
1/4 cup apple cider or apple juice
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves


Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; add onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 minutes or until soft. Add cider, vinegar, and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves and onions are evenly coated. Add sea salt and pepper; reduce heat to low. Simmer, stirring occasionally, 7 minutes or until liquid has reduced to a glaze. Add thyme, and stir. Sprinkle with additional sea salt, if desired, and serve warm.
