Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 2 large red onions, about 1 pound each
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cut each onion in half through the stem ends and then cut each half into 8 wedges. Peel away the skins.
  3. Cut each wedge into ½-inch-thick slices. Separate the onion layers and place them on a half sheet pan. (For an alternate, but similar method for slicing the onions, click the link under the last photo in the recipe post.)
  4. Combine the vinegar, maple syrup, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and pour over the onions. Toss to evenly coat all the onions.
  5. Roast for 1 hour on the bottom rack of the oven, stirring once or twice midway through, until almost all the liquid has evaporated.
