How to Caramelized Onions
July, 2014 · By Coryanne Ettiene
I am the sort of person that impatiently watches the toaster, walks like I am running and talks like an auctioneer. Doing anything slowly is against everything in my nature…in fact, I am also guilty of hitting send before proof reading, only to climb into the fetal position when I notice that auto correct kindly “corrected” a word for me. Patience, it would seem, is not my thing (nor spelling for that matter because I had to quickly refer to Webster’s to make sure I used the right spelling). So making anything in the kitchen that requires my total devotion and a whole lot of patience is not something that I have any time for….except when it comes to caramelized onions. The stirring, the watching, and the ticking clock all become worth it when you get the first whiff that something brilliant is about to happen, and like child birth, every agonizing moment spent seeing them come to life vanishes the instant all the hard work is done.
In my latest video for Kitchen Daily, I share my tips for getting golden, buttery caramelized onions. The beauty with caramelizing onions is that you can use any onion variety, be generous with the butter and, if like me, your attention span starts to crack after 30 minutes, you can freeze your finished onions and enjoy them mid week when time is not on your side.
