 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         Small squid
      1/4  cup           Olive oil or corn oil
    3                    Onions; peeled -- sliced
      1/4  cup           Vinegar
      1/2  cup           Dry red wine
    2                    Cinnamon sticks
    4                    Whole cloves
    1                    Bay leaf
                         Salt & freshly ground pepper
 Wash and clean the squid, separating the outer sacs from the heads and
 tentacles, removing and discarding the translucent cartilage, and small sand bag
 and ink.  Rub salt on the outer sacs and rinse them inside and out with cold
 water.  Rinse head and tentacles thoroughly.
  Heat the oil in a pan, add the squid, including the tentacles, and onions, and
 cook slowly until the onions are translucent.  Pour the vinegar and wine over
 the squid and onions, then add the remaining ingredients and enough water to
 almost cover the squid, if necessary.  Cook, uncovered, over low heat until the
 squid are tender and all the wine has been absorbed, approximately 1 to 1 1/4
 hours.  Remove the spices and bay leaf.
 Cut the squid into bite-sized pieces and serve warm or cold.
