It's hard to think of a better festive side dish than a bowl of glazed pearl onions.


  • 1 cup red pearl onions
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs olive oil


  • Bring a pot of water to a rapid boil and add unpeeled pearl onions. Boil for 1 minute, strain, and place onions in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. Using a sharp knife, slice of the root end of the onions. Squeeze from the top, and your onion should slide right out.
  • Whisk together honey and red wine vinegar. Set aside.
  • In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add peeled pearl onions and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes until they begin to brown.
  • Pour honey and vinegar mixture over onions and stir to evenly coat them. Bring heat to medium-low and continue to sauté onions until the sauce reduced to a syrup.
  • Serve warm.
