  • 21 pearl onions
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cook onions 2 minutes, then transfer to a bowl of ice water. Drain. Peel onions, and cut in half. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Cover, and cook over medium-low heat until cranberries burst and onions are tender, about 40 minutes.
