Natural.Foodie's picture
Ingredients
  Small white onions 1 Pound (1 inch size)
  Unsalted butter 1 Tablespoon
  Fresh apple cider 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Soy sauce 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1) Prepare the onions, by peeling the skin, trimming off the root and about 1/8 inch of the top. At the root end, cut a shallow cross with a sharp paring knife to ensure even cooking.

MAKING
2) In a medium nonreactive skillet, add butter to melt over moderate heat.
3) Place onions in butter and stir to coat.
4) Stir in cider and soy sauce to bring a boil by increasing the heat to high.
5) Simmer the liquid by reducing the heat and covering with a tight lid.
6) Braise the onions for about 10 minutes or until tender when pierced with a knife.
7) Remove the lid and increase the heat to high.
8) Boil the liquid for another 5 minutes, to reduce the cider into a light amber glaze.

SERVING
9) In a serving platter, arrange the onions and scrape off the glaze on top. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

TIPS
Steps 1-8 can be made up to 1 day ahead. Store inside refrigerator by covering and reheat before serving.
