Balsamic onions!

Today I purchased (at the price of a small country) these utterly delicious buggers.

I assume you don't just bung the onions in balsamic vinegar -can anyone help me with a method? I have home grown onions if that makes a difference.

Thank you!

The ones you bought... Are they whole 'baby' onions, or sliced up big 'uns?

Whole onions and absolutely meltingly delicious!

They are easy beyond belief. Peel the outer layer of skin off your onions then roast with a drizzle of olive oil for 30-40 minutes at about 200C till they are meltingly soft, the outside might blacken. When they come out of the oven drizzle about half a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar over the hot onions, then leave to cool. The mix of roasted onion oil and balsamic is amazing. Good next day too.

Thank you 21! These are definitely not cooked though. Your recipe sounds gorgeous

So it's like a pickled onion?

Never heard of this but my mouth is watering. I'm going to try this.

I think it must be pickled onion as they are very crunchy. I reckon you must salt them first.

Can get them at our local deli,I could sit & eat a whole pot,but they are ridiculously expensive for what they are hmm So a luxury in our house I'm afraid!!

Luis did you see my link?

Thanks MyLife that looks pretty close, thank you.

Only one left in the pot now. Going to save the vinegar and use in salad dressing smile

Luis - they are but I think they must be roasted slightly first(as someone suggested)as they are quite squidgy but oh so delicious,much better than bog standard pickled onions grin
