Sweet and Sour Flowering Red Onions
I love when a vegetable can indicate the season. These onions are so beautiful and tasty. You can make these in advance, then just warm and serve. You can also make them with yellow onions, although the sweetness of the red onions is my favorite for this recipe. They are stunning next to grilled steaks or fish. They can also add great flair to a vegetable platter.
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
- Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the onions in and cook until tender on the outside, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove and cool. When the onions are cool enough to touch, gently open the onion "petals" so the onion opens up like a flower.
- In a small pot, simmer the vinegar and brown sugar with 2 tablespoons water over medium heat until syrupy, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Plate the onions on a platter and spoon the sauce over the onion flowers. Serve.
