Sweet and Sour Onions

450 gram (1 lb) button onions
25 grams (1 oz) unsalted butter
25 grams (1 oz) caster sugar
50 ml. (2 fl oz) white wine vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Blanch the onions in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain off the
water. Melt the butter in a frying pan. Once bubbling, add the
onions and cook over a medium heat until golden. Add the sugar and
continue to cook for a further 1 minute. Now add the white wine
vinegar and boil to reduce until almost dry. Alternatively, the
sugar and vinegar can both be added at the same time to create a
syrup and almost sauce consistency. Season with salt and pepper
and serve.

Notes: These serve really well as a vegetable or to go with another
dish. Grilled chicken breasts or wings is delicious with these
sweet and sour onions, as is grilled or sauted liver. But one of
my favourities is roast turbot or halibut with the onions trickling
over, giving that sweet and sour flavour to work with the bitter
sweetness of the fish.
