Sherried Kula Onions: Page 210, Another Taste of Aloha

Caramelized onions: scrumptious but way too time-consuming, yes?  What if I told you that you could have delicious golden-brown onions in a quarter of the time?  Enter the Sherried Kula Onions, on page 210 of Another Taste of Aloha, in the Vegetables section.

This recipe is genius – you cook down the onions just until soft, then finish them with a splash of sherry, giving them beautiful color and the sweet golden taste they’d get from caramelizing.  We make caramelized onions (not-so-)often at our house, because we love them in omelets and on salads, and now we’ll be able to enjoy them even more!  Try these, they’re a trick you must have in your home-cook arsenal.

Golden and delicious – you’ll love the sweet home-cooked flavor!
