Caramelised onions

  • Preparation time: 45 min
  • Difficulty:
  • Number of ingredients: 11

Ingredients:

  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Wide pan with thick base
  • Metal spatula
  • Several medium or large onions, yellow, white or red
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Butter, if desired
  • Salt
  • Sugar, to taste (a teaspoon of sugar for 5 onions)
  • Balsamic vinegar, if desired
  • A little water

Instructions:

1. Step Cut the onion in half through the root end. Peel the skin from the onion and cut it into slices.
2. Step Grease the bottom of the pan with olive oil or a mixture of olive oil and butter (about 1 teaspoon per onion). Heat the pan over a medium-high heat until the oil shimmers.
3. Step Add the onion slices and stir to coat the onions with the oil. Spread the onions evenly over the pan and leave to cook, stirring occasionally.
4. Step Adjust the heat to prevent the onions from burning.
5. Step After 10 minutes, sprinkle the onions with salt and, if desired, add a little sugar to help the caramelisation.
6. Step One trick to keep the onions from drying out while cooking is to add a little water to the pan.
7. Step Then cook for another 30 minutes to an hour, stirring every few minutes. When the onions start to stick to the pan, let them stick and brown a little, then stir them before they burn.
8. Step As the onions caramelise, use a metal spatula to scrape the browned bits off the bottom of the pan. As the onions cook, you may need to scrape the pan every minute, rather than just every few minutes.
9. Step Continue cooking and scraping, cooking and scraping, until the onions are a rich brown colour.
10. Step At the end of cooking you can add a little balsamic vinegar or wine to deglaze the pan and give the onions extra flavour.
11. Step The onions can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for several days.
