Caramelized Onions
  • 2 medium/large yellow or sweet onions, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fat of your choice (see page 23)
  • Salt
  1. In a large saucepan, heat the fat of your choice over medium heat. Add the onions and sprinkle them generously with salt. Stir as needed to prevent premature browning, allowing the onions to “sweat” and wilt.
  2. Continue to cook until the onions turn a light brown color, are sweet, and are very soft. This process takes about 30 minutes.
