Tender pearl onions in a sweet, glossy glaze.

Creamed pearl onions with a sweet, mild flavor.
My favorite way to cook leeks as the main ingredient in a dish is to braise them. They retain their subtly aroma but acquire a completely tender, almost meaty texture as they slowly break down and absorb liquid.
This recipe is adapted from a recipe that Todd Thrasher provided to Imbibe magazine. I've added lime zest and fresh thyme, both of which work well in cocktails. The result is a bright, citrusy onion that tastes fantastic in a Gibson.
