  • Yield: 10 servings (serving size: about 1/3 cup)

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts water
  • 4 pounds Cipollini onions
  • 4 rosemary sprigs
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Rosemary sprigs (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 475°.

Bring water to a boil in a stockpot. Add onions; cook 30 seconds. Drain; cool. Peel onions; arrange in a single layer on a jelly roll pan. Top with 4 rosemary sprigs.

Combine wine and next 4 ingredients (wine through honey), stirring with a whisk. Pour wine mixture over onions. Bake at 475° for 30 minutes, turning twice.

Remove onions from pan with a slotted spoon. Carefully pour cooking liquid into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes or until mixture is the consistency of a thin syrup. Pour over onions; toss well to coat. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
