Sweet and Sour Baby Onions

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bobtail

From my Cookshelf Italian cookbook and these are very good! You can add more sugar if you prefer it sweeter or more vinegar for more tang. Hope you enjoy!

Oh yum! I used small onions, not baby, I just cut them into smaller pieces. I also halved it, but won't next time. Delicious! Mine were a little darker than the picture. I let them cook just a hair longer so they would be cooked through. Thanks!
