Honey Baked Red Onions

Ingredients:

  • 3 large red onions (about 3 lbs.)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (preferably sweet Hungarian)
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cayenne pepper

Makes 6 servings

Peel and cut onions in half crosswise. Place cut side down in shallow baking dish just large enough to hold all onions in one layer. Sprinkle with water; cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Turn onions cut side up. Combine remaining ingredients. Spoon half of mixture over onions. Return to oven and bake, uncovered, 15 minutes. Baste with remaining honey mixture; continue baking 15 minutes or until tender.
