How to Caramelize Onions

  1. Place onion and butter in a deep heavy-based frying pan. Don’t use a non-stick pan, as the onion needs to catch on the base to brown.
  2. Cook the onion slowly over low heat. This allows the natural sugar in the onion to gradually caramelise and become golden.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally to allow the onion to catch on the base, until golden brown. This takes about 30 minutes for three onions.
