    Elmotoo's Note:

    I found this recipe for my Italian FIL. He said he'd never heard of them but his mother DID make "jubilee onions." I figure if calamari = galama, sopressata - soopesage, cavatelli = gavadeel, then cipollini = jubilee. This is a very simple, straightforward recipe as are many Italian recipes.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat the butter in a pan large enough to hold the onions.
    2. 2
      Cook the onions in the butter for a few minutes while stirring.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle on the sugar, the vinegar and enough water to barely cover the onions and bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Simmer until the liquid is completely gone, stirring occasionally, 15-20 minutes, watching carefully to avoid scorching. (The onions will become glazed & caramelized).
    5. 5
      Sprinkle with lemon juice & serve.

      We love sweet and sour onions. We LOVED these wonderful sweet and sour onions. Everything was spot on. I made them earlier in the day and we ate them with salad and sandwiches (at room temperature) and thought they were perfection. Thanks.

      Superb superb flavor. I put the heat at medium and let it boil down more quickly as I was in a hurry, but these were outstanding, will make again and again

      It would be helpful to know how the onions are prepped: sliced into rings, slivered? I added water to completely cover the onions but that proved to be too much and none of it had evaporated. I raised the heat to medium-high and cooked down the liquid to a gooey stage. It worked out perfectly. Served these delicious onions over a bed of organic arugula. Reviewed for Veg Adopt a Tag.
