These onions have the most delicious flavour – slightly sweet with honey, but spicy with lemon, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar. They would go well with roast pork, baked gammon or with any grilled foods.

Peel the onions, leaving them whole. Cover with fresh cold water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes to blanch them and then drain.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the honey, sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar and a seasoning of salt and pepper. Stir over low heat until the ingredients have blended. Add the onions. Cover with a lid and simmer gently for 25 m
