Ingredients

  • 1 pound small red or white cippollinis, about 20, root and stem trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch salt

Directions

Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil and add the onions. Lower to a simmer and cook for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and peel.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, warm the olive oil with the bay leaves while the onions are cooking.

Turn the peeled onions in the olive oil and cook for 5 minutes, until just browned. Add the vinegar and sugar, raise the heat slightly and cook, stirring frequently, until the vinegar-sugar mixture starts to caramelize, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and discard bay leaves. Turn the onions gently to coat thoroughly with syrupy mixture.

Season with salt and pepper, and set aside to cool. Serve at room temperature.
