Confit d’Oignons au Vin Rouge

confit d oignons

My recipe theme for August is recipes of famous artists.  I came up with this theme as I started research recipes for our cabaret night in August.  Since the Les Hydropathes, who later occupied the Le Chat Noir  in the bohemian Montmartre district of Paris, were not famous for their cooking; I had to resort to the recipes of famous artists and writers.  Although I do believe the Confit d’Oignons au Vin Rouge was a popular item back then.

INGREDIENTS (20 PEOPLE)

1kg Roscoff onions
37,5cl red wine (bordeaux)
4 tbsp of raspberry vinegar
25g of four spices [Quatre Epices]
4 tbsp honey
olive oil

DIRECTIONS:

Peel and finely slice the onions.
Heat a saucepan with the olive oil and sweat the onions.
Reduce to very low heat and add the other ingredients. Simmer and simmer for 45 minutes. Long cooking will reduce onions, wine and vinegar.
Salt before leaving to cool in a pot.
