Caramelised Onions

Caramelised onions are so easy to prepare and there are so many different ways to use them. They make a good base for French onion soup, onion and feta tarts, gravy, steak sauce, and a great pizza topping. They also keep in the refrigerator for about a week so it's worth making up a batch!

Caramelised Onions

Makes about 2.5 Cups

4 red onions
3/4 Cup water
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Cup Balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
pinch of salt and pepper

1. Peel and slice the onions.

2. Put everything in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45-50 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed or evaporated and the onions are nice and soft.

3. Allow to cool, store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
