Choose large onions, Spanish are the best. Peel and cut off the roots and tops. Arrange them in a baking tray, which has been well greased with butter. Dredge with flour and salt. Put a piece of butter on top of each onion and bake in a moderate oven, 350° F., gas mark 4, for 1–1½ hours until soft and tender. Baste fairly frequently.
