Shallots in Red Wine

Serves 4

- 110g/4oz unsalted butter
- 450g/1lb medium sized shallots, peeled
- 200g/7fl oz vegetable or herb stock, preferably home-made
- 1 tablespoon runny honey - thyme honey if you can get it
- 2 large sprigs fresh thyme
- 200ml/7fl oz red wine

Heat half the butter in a large pan. Tip in the shallots and cook, shaking gently, until golden brown all over. Add the stock, honey and thyme and boil until the stock is reduced to just a few spoonfuls. Pour in the wine and boil down again. Off the heat, add the rest of the butter, cut into cubes, and stir carefully until the shallots are glazed.

If you can find them, use the French long shallots which have a distinctive flavour which is less sharp than the small round shallots traditionally used for pickling.
