A perfect holiday side dish from Hank Shaw. Enjoy! ~Elise
This is a lovely way to eat smaller onions. I learned this recipe from Italian cookbooks, where they call it onions agrodolce, but the concept of sweet-and-sour onions is pretty widespread.

A typical holiday feast around here is a rather colorful affair. Lots of browns, yellows, reds, and greens. And then there is orange. I can't remember a Thanksgiving without a vibrant dish of garnet yams (a.k.a. sweet potatoes). Usually we just mash them up with some brown sugar and spices. But a few years ago, we tried out this recipe from Bon Appetit and loved it! We've since adjusted the recipe a bit, removing the flour from the topping and replacing it with ground pecans for our gluten-intolerant family members. I've also added a little orange zest to add a little balance to the sweetness of the dish. You could also add a dash of lemon juice for the same purpose. Smothering yams this way, in brown sugar and maple syrup, almost turns this dish into a dessert - not for everyday perhaps, but just the thing for a holiday treat.
