Recipe by Christine L.
"A wonderful relish-like vegetable dish. This dish can be made 6 hours ahead, and rewarmed before serving. Sherry wine vinegar can be substituted for red wine vinegar."

I loved this recipe. Unfortunately, I didn't have raisins and I didn't have almonds. I substituted craisins for the raisins and skipped the almonds. I used frozen pearl onions instead of fresh. Still wonderful and tasty. Elegant sidedish to a meat (we had turkey). I will definitely make this again.
I've been making this recipe for many years. It's a tradition at Thanksgiving-- my husband's favorite side dish. The sherry and almonds really add a lot to the taste, so I recommend leaving this recipe alone. It's fabulous.
Everyone loved this recipe. It took a while to make for a side dish but I used it for a potluck where it was the only thing I had to bring. Since it was a Christmas dinner I subbed craisins for the raisins but used the almonds. Delish!
So good! I subbed cognac for sherry, omitted the almonds, and had to use dried thyme, but this was still delicious.
Made this for Thanksgiving and it was awesome! The smell of the onions cooking had everyone's stomachs growling and I had to fight everyone off with my wooden spoon!
My boyfriend's favorite! We had it as accompaniment to some roasted chicken and rice, and it was so good. I didn't have cherry, and used apple cider vinegar, and it was so good. Very easy to make too!
I made this unusual recipe for a book club pot luck dinner. We read Tulipomania about the Dutch tulip craze of the 1600s and how some people mistakenly ate valuable tulip bulbs thinking they were onions. It was a PERFECT recipe to this event and was a hit. I sprinkled some dried parsley and snipped chives on top for a bit of color, and I added a 1/2 t of garlic powder. Maybe next time will add a clove of minced garlic at the start of the simmering.
These were delicious! I did have to modify a bit because I didn't have any raisins so I used dried cranberries. I know I have slivered almonds buried somewhere in the blackhole AKA my freezer but alas I could not find. With those changes it was stil wonderful and so easy to make. This will be on my Thanksgiving table this fall for sure. Thank for sharing Christine L !
