Baked Red Onions recipe


3 red onions, halved.
Rind of one lemon, cut into strips.
¼ cup of olive oil.
½ cup of raisins.
¼ cup of Port wine.
2 tablespoons of cider vinegar.
½ tablespoon of packed brown sugar.
Pepper, to taste.


In a large saucepan, cover onions and lemon rind with water; then bring to boil and boil for 5 minutes.

Drain, then rinse under cold running water and drain again.

Discard the lemon rind.

Peel the onions and arrange in a 13-inch by 9-inch casserole.

Pour the olive oil over the onions.

Bake, uncovered, at 375°F (190°C), basting occasionally, for about 40 minutes.
