The next time your recipe calls for sautéed onions, try caramelizing them for a richer, more sophisticated flavor. The process is easy. Simply melt butter over low heat, stir in sliced onions, and cook them slowly until they become a translucent, golden brown.
Use 1 Tablespoon of butter per 1-1½ cups of onion.
Melt the butter over low heat.
Stir in the sliced onions and cook slowly for at least 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
The onions will become translucent and golden brown.
