On Thursday evenings at Villa Eddarella on our Soriano vacations, one of the dishes we serve is this incredibly simple, but delicious onion dish. Not a week goes by that guests don't ask Carla for the recipe, so here it is!

 2 jars cocktail onions
 ½ stick of butter
 5 tbsp sugar
 1 tbsp black pepper

Drain all of the liquid from the coctail onions, rinse, and soak in cold water for about 20 minutes


Take a large non stick pan and melt about 1/2 stick of butter with a tablespoon of black pepper and a 5 tablespoons of sugar.


When the sugar is starting to brown, add the drained and rinsed onions.


Add a pinch of salt Cook for about 30 minutes
or until the onions become caramelized.


Add more sugar if needed. If the onions feel hard add a ladle of hot water and continue cooking for another 10 minutes
