How To Caramelize Onions

The best way to caramelize onions is with patience. And time. You can’t rush the process or you will burn them.

There is nothing better than rich perfectly caramelized onions.


• Sweet onions • Butter • Sea salt


In a large skillet melt the butter over medium-high heat.


Once the butter is melted, add the onions and salt, stirring to combine. Keep an eye on the onions and stir occasionally.


Once the onions begin to soften, reduce the heat to medium-low.


Cook onions, stirring occasionally until they begin to turn golden brown and translucent.

Absolutely! Some great flavors that go along with the onions are thyme and rosemary. They are hearty herbs that will stand up to the longer caramelization time of the onions.
