Sweet & sour baby onions
Soak the onions in a bowl of boiling water for 15 minutes. Using a sharp knife, peel and halve the onions.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and bay leaves to the pan, and cook for 5–6 minutes until golden brown all over.
Slice the lemon zest into thin matchsticks. Add to the frying pan with the sugar and honey. Cook for 2–3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are lightly caramelized.
Add the vinegar to the frying pan. Continue to cook for 5 minutes or so, stirring, until the onions are tender. Transfer to a dish, and serve immediately.
