|600 grams||Small Round Shallots; Peeled|
|3 tablespoons||Maple Syrup|
|2 tablespoons||Lemon Juice|
|Salt And Pepper|
Leave the shallots whole. If some of them are much larger than others, remove the outer layers to reveal twin inner shallots of a more equal girth. Melt the butter in a heavy pan large enough to take the shallots in a single, snug layer. Fry the shallots until patched with brown - about 5 minutes. Drizzle over the maple syrup and stir for about 1 minute. Now add the lemon juice, salt and pepper and just enough water to cover. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer gently, stirring every now and then, until the shallots are very tender (add a little more water if necessary) and there is only a thin layer of syrup left in the pan - about 30 to 40 minutes. Reheat when needed (they will keep in the fridge, covered, for 2 to 3 days).
