Onions can be prepared in many different ways, but consuming them in caramelized form is definitely one of the tastiest ways to enjoy these healthy veggies.
However, most people avoid preparing them in this way because the process is a little bit difficult – you have to check the stove all the time, keep stirring them all the time and be careful so that they won’t burn.
This is quite complicated or most people and it take only a moment to churn and burn your dish. That’s why we have decided to whip up some sweet onions and see the results.
Once we have tried the same procedure for several times, with some small changes and modifications each time, we are proud to say that we have mastered the preparation of these onions.
So, chop the onions and add a small amount of butter along with some balsamic vinegar or brown sugar. After that, throw them in your cooker and wait for the results.
Next, you can use these onions in a tasty French onion-based soup or as a dressing for a green bean casserole. Believe us when we say that you won’t be disappointed.
