Caramelized Onions

Step by step recipe:

  1. 3 min.Caramelized Onions : Photo of step #1
    Peel then rinse 500 g onion and cut in half lengthways.
  2. 5 min.Caramelized Onions : Photo of step #2
    Slice the onions thinly. If you have one, a mandolin will make this job a lot quicker.

    This seems like a lot of onions to begin with, but they will reduce by 2/3 when cooked.

    When hot, add the onions and mix well.

    Stop when they are browned to your liking.

    Salt and pepper to taste...

Remarks:

Once cooked, the onions will need quite a generous amount of salt as the process tends to make them rather sweet.

You can balance this sweetness, which can be a bit excessive at times, by pouring half a glass of dry white wine or 3 tablespoonsful of vinegar into the pan 5 minutes before the end of cooking.
