The Kitchn is offering an online 20 day (FREE) cooking course. Of course, I signed up for it. The first class was yesterday and focused on knife skills. Today was onions and garlic. One of the homework options was making caramelized onions. Since I have never made it, I decided to go with that one 🙂
I started off with some normal yellow onions and sliced them
All in the pan and I checked them at 10 minute intervals.
It is supposed to take about an hour to make them, but, for me, it took a bit longer. I don’t know if the onions were too thick or if the heat was too low, but I had nowhere to go, so it wasn’t a big deal too me. One thing I do agree with is that you cannot rush the procedure. If you try to rush the process, I don’t think it would turn out very well.
I made a collage for you of all the cooking snaps I took
Last two ingredients were salt and a liquid for deglazing the pan. I chose Balsamic Vinegar this time. I think next time, I will use chicken broth. Th ingredient list showed 2 tbsp, but the actual recipe said 1/4 cup. I poured it into a measuring cup and added slowly. It actually ended up being 2 tbsp before I decided to stop. Taste and salt accordingly.
I am still trying to figure out what to do with them. Maybe some potatoes or a tart or quiche of some sort . If I don’t use it, everything I read says that they will freeze well, so there is nothing to worry about if I can’t find anything right away. Of course my boyfriend has now graciously offered to take them off my hands if I need – lol
