Recipe by Bergy

This is a unique appetizer and may be mixed on a platter with other appetizers. I usually spear a couple of raisins and an onion on a toothpick. If mixed in with other veggies or hors d'oeuvres there are enough for 10-12 people. The onions should be well chilled before serving

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the onions in a saucepan with the wine, oil, vinegar, bay leaf, garlic, and salt The fluid should just cover the onions if not add a bit more wine.
  2. Bring to a boil, simmer gently for 6 minutes.
  3. Stir in the tomato paste, saffron and raisins.
  4. Continue to simmer for 3 more minutes or until the onions are just tender and not too soft. Remove from heat and chill.
