- Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over a low heat.
- Add the onions with a generous pinch of salt and cook slowly for 30-40 mins. Stir occasionally to prevent them from sticking or burning until they become soft and golden. If the onions start to catch, add a splash of water to the pan and mix well.
- Add the sugar and vinegar to give them a sweet, slightly sharp chutney flavour. Keep cooking on a low heat for another 5 mins, stirring occasionally until the mix is sticky, the sugar has dissolved and the vinegar has reduced. The onions are now ready to serve, or use in a recipe.

- Remove a small slice from both stem and root end of each pearl onion and peel them. An alternate way is to parboil them for 2 minutes, drain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process. Pop the skins off by pressing the onion at its root end.
- Set the onions in a saucepan wide enough to accommodate them in one layer and barely cover them with water. Boil over high heat for 10 minutes until partially cooked. Add the butter and sugar and continue to boil until the water has evaporated and the onions begin to sizzle.
- Reduce the heat to medium low and shake the saucepan and turn the onions in the butter and sugar to brown them. Continue to cook until the onions are glazed, brown and syrupy looking. Add a tablespoonful or more of balsamic vinegar and cook until evaporated. Season well with salt and pepper.
- Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and toss to coat with butter. Cover and slowly cook onions, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until a golden Color is reached. Turn heat up to medium high and begin to brown the onions, stirring constantly about 10 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

- Set a 6-quart Instant Pot® to high saute (see Cook's Note). Add the butter and olive oil to the pot. Once the butter has melted completely, add the onions, thyme, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and several grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring, until the onions start to sizzle and the mixture is thoroughly combined, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook on high for 4 minutes. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete (this should take about 2 minutes). Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid, then stir in the balsamic vinegar. At this point, the onions should be tender and blonde in color.
- Set the pot back to high saute and cook, stirring frequently and scraping any brown bits from the bottom and sides of the pot, until almost all the liquid has evaporated and the onions are a deep golden brown and saucy, about 30 minutes. Be sure to stir the onions frequently and watch them closely; you want to scrape the brown bits from the pot before they turn too dark and burn. Remove the thyme stems; taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
Caramelizing onions changes their flavour from sharp and pungent to sweet and complex. You cook them until they're deeply coloured and jam-like. The onion jam will keep for weeks when refrigerated. Use it to thicken soups and sauces, garnish grilled meats, poultry & seafood, fill omelets and sandwiches, stir into dips, toss with pasta... The prep time doesn't include the time to peel and chop the onions. This recipe was found in How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. This is a wonderful cookbook filled with simple tips and recipes for just about anything you can think of .

SIMPLE CARAMELIZED ONIONS
- Put the onions in the bowl with the fat or butter. Cover the bowl and microwave for 10 minutes on high.
- Take off the cover, and stir the onions--there should be good bit of liquid in the bowl. Microwave (uncovered) for approximately 10 more minutes, but keep an eye on it. It should get brown around the edges, so stir it periodically.
- Eventually it'll be a brown mass of onions. If you like them crispy, microwave them a bit longer but, again, keep an eye on them--it's a real short moment between crispy and burnt.
- You can do this in a conventional oven too, but it takes longer; say around 20 minutes at 350°F with the cover on and another 20 min with the cover off, stirring periodically. Once again, keep an eye on it.

It takes the better part of an hour to coax an onion's sugars from blonde to nutty brown. Make a big batch of caramelized onions once and save them to pull out when you want all that complex flavor without having spent all that time.

- Peel your onions and cut them in half through their stem ends-longways, if you will. Slice them thinly with the grain, following the line from root to stem rather than cutting the onion across its belly. This is actually important because slicing it the other way makes the path to silky onions a longer one.
- Once your onions are sliced, heat your skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil, then the onions and the salt. Let the onions sizzle for a couple minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon or a heatproof spatula and watch as they wilt for about 3 more minutes. At this point, reduce the heat to medium low. Put a lid on and step away for a few minutes. Give the onions a stir every now and then. You don't have to stand over it like risotto, but don't go for a walk around the block either. Caramelized bits will accumulate at the bottom and sides of the pan, and that's good. Just scrape them up and stir them in. A little color building as you go is okay, but don't rush to brown them. The point is to cook the onions gently, coaxing them through stages of raw, wilted, sweaty, soft, light brown, and finally deeply caramelized
- About 45 minutes in, remove the lid for the last time. They should be a light caramel color. Now, with the lid off, you will need to watch more closely and stir more frequently. At some point you may find that despite your best efforts some of the caramelized bits, verging on burnt, cling to the pan and threaten over all onion ruin. Do not fret! Just add a ½ cup or so of water and use its energy to help scrape up the stubborn but tasty film. Let the water cook out of course. When you're smiling over a soft, creamy, fragrant pile of mahogany onions, you're done.
- Note: R-Rated Onions will keep in the fridge for a week and in the freezer for 3 months.
Caramelizing onions transforms them into a savory, almost sweet golden-brown tango. Sweet onions like Vidalia and Oso will carmelize a little faster, but any onion will work. I love caramelized onions as a side-dish for any meat dish or scattered over a pizza. Also good on hamburgers and scrambled eggs. Plus you gotta have them if you want to make French Onion Soup!

- Halve both onions through root end. Using the tip of your knife, cut a V-shaped notch around root to remove it (this will ensure that all slices separate when you cut the onion).
- Place 1 onion half on your cutting board so root end is facing you, then thinly slice onion lengthwise, starting at one side and working all the way to the other (so your knife runs through the root halfway through, not starting or ending at the root end). You’re going for slices that are ¼"–⅛" thick.
- Repeat same slicing procedure for remaining onion halves. It’s a lot of onion! But it will cook down quite a bit, so it’s best to start with a large quantity.
- Heat 2 Tbsp. butter in a large saucepan over medium until melted and sizzling. You can use a skillet to cook the onions, but a pan with high sides will keep the onions from flipping out onto your stove. Using a pan that also has a wide base gives water room to evaporate, allowing the onions to caramelize rather than steam.

- Choose Your Onions. I usually use yellow onions, but white or purple will also work. The amount of onions to caramelize is up to you. I find that two to three work well for a large skillet.
- Slice Your Onion. Cut the stem and root ends off the onion. Then halve the onion and cut it into thin slices. The onion should then naturally separate into half-rings.
- Melt Butter in a Skillet. Add three to four tablespoons of fat to a large skillet over medium heat. Butter and olive oil both work well. I like to use a combination of the two, as the butter adds rich flavor and the oil can tolerate higher temperatures without burning.
- Add the Onions and a Pinch of Salt. The salt will season the onions, but it will also help pull out some of the moisture and move the process right along.
- Deglaze. If the onions stick to the bottom of the pan, deglaze with a tablespoon of red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, or wine. I usually stick with balsamic vinegar because the flavor complements the onions perfectly.
