Serves 4 to 6
- 12 small cippolini onions
- 24 smallish red radishes
- 2 slices bacon
- 2 heaping tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- Salt and black pepper
- Bring a small pot of water to a boil and the add the onions and wait 30 to 40 seconds. Drain the onions and cool and then peel. (the plunge in the boiling water makes this a fairly easy task) Set aside
- Clean and trim the radishes leaving about 1/2 inch of the stem on. Set aside
- In a large saute pan cook the bacon until crisp, remove to paper toweling and crumble when cool. Set aside.
- In the same saute pan, add the onions and radishes to the bacon drippings and stir in the honey and vinegar. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and then transfer all to a smallish baking dish (mine was 10x10 inches)
- Roast in a preheated 400F oven for 40 to 45 minutes, stirring once or twice during that time. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon over and serve warm.
