Onions w/Honey (Cebollas con Miel) (D, TNT)
Source: "Delicioso, Regional Cooking of Spain," by Penelope Casas
Serves: 4

12 to 16 small onions
4 teaspoons butter
2 tablespoons honey
A few strands of saffron, crumbled
Dash of ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
Dash of nutmeg
Freshly ground pepper

Trim the stem end of the onions and make an incision in the shape of a cross at the same end. Plunge the onions into boiling water and boil 1 minute. Remove from water and slip off the onion skins, then return the onions to the water, cover and simmer 20 minutes more.

Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the water, stir in butter, honey, and all the remaining seasonings. Cook at a high simmer, uncovered, until the liquid is absorbed and the onions golden, stirring constantly (watch carefully to prevent scorching).

Poster's Notes:
For once (!) I followed the recipe exactly and they were excellent! It was part of a dinner with friends whose daughter is vegetarian and I rose to the challenge (!) of doing a completely vegetarian Spanish meal!
