16 white pearl onions (about 1 cup), root ends trimmed and scored with an X

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns

In a medium saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the pearl onions until just tender, about 8 minutes.

Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. Transfer the onions to a glass bowl.

Meanwhile, in another medium saucepan, bring the water and vinegar to a boil with the sugar, mustard seeds, coriander seeds and peppercorns. Boil until the sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes.

Pour the liquid over the onions and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 2 days.

Drain before serving.
