Recipe by Gidget

Makes a posh vegetable side-dish. This recipe originally came from a really old Readers Digest cookbook but I've tweaked it a little (as you do).

These onions are great. I used fresh herbs and chicken stock, also used sultanas. Next time I make it, I'll quadruple the recipe so there's some leftovers!
