Sweet and Sour Ramps
You can use any spring or pearl onion here, or young "regular onions." This is a good side dish either hot or at room temperature.

Servings: 4 people
- 1/2 pound dozen ramps or pearl onions
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons white wine or sherry vinegar
- 3 tablespoons light-colored honey
- Black pepper for garnish
Clean the ramps or pearl onions and remove the leaves or green parts; use them for another recipe.
If you are using pearl onions, boil them for 5 minutes in very salty water before proceeding. This softens them.
Saute the ramps in the olive oil over medium-high heat until they brown, about 5 minutes.
Add honey and vinegar and swirl to combine in the pan. Turn the heat down and simmer until the liquid reduces to a glaze, about another 6 to 8 minutes.
Serve hot or at room temperature with some fresh black pepper.
