My family, particularly 2 foodies, said, ” these are to die for!” Will be making them as an appetizer for a vegan dinner party but swapping out the forbidden honey for organic maple syrup.
You can get frozen pearl onions at Kroger under the Kroger brand. They are peeled and ready to use, but they are not cooked. I think Kroger is more available in some areas than Trader Joe’s.
Just made this tonight, wow, delicious! We will definitely make this again!
I’m thinking of serving these on xmas eve. Can these be prepared ahead of time (a couple of days before?) and how should they be reheated?
Yes, you can make them ahead of time. I actually like sweet and sour onions at room temperature, so you could go that route. Or, gently reheat them in a covered pot set over low heat with a little water added. ~Hank
This is absolutely one of my favorite recipes! In Puglia (Southern Italy) we make agrodolce onions with Primitivo wine vinegar (they become a bit more red) and then we accompany them with stir fried eggplants cooked with some cherry tomatoes and capers. They are so delicate and delicious. Really a must!
You can buy frozen pearl onions at Trader Joes if you have one nearby. They’re pretty fabulous.
I was going to do a roasted mushroom and onion dish but this looks wonderful. Question- can I used frozen pearl onions that have been thawed (already purchased).
thank you and Happy Thanksgiving-
I think so. See the answer to the comment above. ~Hank
Can you use the frozen pearl onion for the Sweet & Sour Onions recipe? If so, should they be cooked any first before the saute step?
Uh, frozen onions? I’ve never even seen them. I suppose they have been blanched and peeled, though, and if they are pearl onions they will probably not need to be cooked before they hit the saute pan. But I am just guessing here, having never worked with frozen onions before. ~Hank
