How to make it

  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking, over medium heat
  • Add the pearl onions& sprinkle the sugar over the onions
  • Cook, shaking the pan frequently, until the onions are lightly golden, about 2 mins
  • Add the vinegar & water & bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer, cover, & cook until the onions are tender, about 15 mins
  • Stir in the garlic & green onions & cook, uncovered, until the green onions are just wilted, about 2 mins
  • Stir in the peas, mint & salt.
  • Cook just until the peas are heated through, about 3 mins
  • Stir in the butter & toss until the butter has melted, about 30 sec. longer
  • Spoon into a fancy dish & serve
  • .
  • NOTE:-
  • While fresh onions are always best, 2 cups frozen pearl onions can be used in a pinch
  • To make peeling the pearl onions a little easier, place in a bowl & soak for a few mins in hot water.

    I have not been able to confirm this but years ago I was told by a historian that this was a favorite dish of General George Armstrong Custer. Just a little tidbit of information.
