There are very few dishes I so thoroughly enjoying making than caramelized onions.
If I have the time, that is. As in, an hour of time.
And no boys running around my feet.
And so yesterday, with an entire nap-time to do as I wished, I chopped 5 onions and set to caramelizing. I also had a book to read, so I read, stirred, read and read, scraped, stirred, and read some more.
Oh the bubbling. The delightful aroma. The scraping of little caramelized bits.
It's amazing that a whole pan full of raw onions turns into this:
Oh yum. This is a great site to references if you've never made these delicious onions. Top sandwiches or burgers with them -- soups and stews are set a notch above with them added.
They even make a spoon taste better.
