pound pearl onions (skinless)
cup corn syrup
tbsp lemon juice
tsp ground black pepper
In a large heavy pot over moderate heat, melt butter, add corn syrup,
lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until thick enough to
to a spoon (about consistency of honey).
Add pearl onions to the glaze and cook for about 4-5 minutes.
Serve warm with meat dishes, and other cooked or glazed vegetables.
When peeling a pearl onions, soak them for a minute or two in boiling
then rinse under cold water. The skins will then slip off easily.
