So delicious. This takes me back to my childhood and family dinners. My Aunt made something like this for all holiday meals. I made this for Easter dinner a couple of weeks ago and my sister asked how I had gotten Our Aunts recipe when it was never written down. I now have this written down.

I served this today to a crowd of 12 tough critics. I liked it because I didn't want a "creamed" onion recipe, and I needed a sugar-free side dish. This was perfect. No leftovers. I used small boiling onions and steamed them to tender. I sauteed them the night before, and added all the remaining ingredients. I put it all into a container to marinade overnight (for convenience). The next day, I put them in a pan over high heat and it thickened beautifully. I was very pleased with the result. I will definitely make this again and again. Thanks!

I have made this recipe for several years. The flavors blend excellently, and it is quite easy. Adds a nice gourmet touch to holiday dinners.

Used frozen pearl onions, golden raisins, and fresh thyme. Made exactly as written, tasted, and then added a good squeeze of a fresh orange wedge which gave it a nice hint of citrus and toned down the tomato-y flavor. A very nice "outside-the-box" side dish, and I couldn't be happier with the way this turned out.
