Stewed Onions Ingredients
A dozen medium sized onions peeled
Chicken stock - sufficient to cover the onions in the pot
Mushroom catsup (optional) (catsup = ketchup)
Stewed Onions Cooking Method
Place the peeled onions in a cooking pot and cover them with chicken stock.
Add white pepper and salt to taste.
Stew the onions on a gentle heat for an hour.
Separate the onions from the stock and keep them warm. (Optionally, you may grill the onions to partly brown them.)
Reduce the stock to taste and thicken with butter kneaded in the white flour.
Serve the onions in a small bowl and pour the sauce over them.
Add a little mushroom catsup (optional).
To Roast Onions
Onions are roasted in the oven in their skins, peeled, and served with cold butter and salt. They are eaten either alone or with roasted potatoes, or with red or pickled herrings. In the latter case, we would recommend mustard as well as butter.
