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!
