Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 medium onions
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

Instructions

  1. Cut onion in half, and slice onion halves to create half circles.
  2. Place onions and butter in a medium pot or skillet, and cook over medium-low heat, until onions become golden and sweet, stirring occasionally. This can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 1 hour of cooking. Slow and steady is the key.
  3. The 2 onions produced about 1 cup of caramelized onions.

Notes

  • The time it takes to caramelize depends on the onion your start with. Vadalia and red onions caramelize faster than white and yellow because they start out sweeter.
  • The white onions pictured were cooked for 50 minutes.
