Default Caramalised Onions

This is the easiest way I've found to cook caramalised onions, & it works!
I tried these out last week, used a batch of them & froze the rest for upcoming meals, especially BBQ's. My friend has a wedding anniversary in July with about 70 people invited, so this method will work perfectly, (it will be mad enough on the day!) & it means guests can help themselves & the food stays hot!!


I used a mix of red and white onions, the red ones will loose a bit of colour but the sweetness remained. It worked perfectly, in fact it made it so much easier.
They tasted just the same as the wok method but far less hassle, you just throw them in the pot and let them do their thing!
We used some of them for onion gravy and froze the rest in small portions.
FYI At 12 hours they still had a slight crunch, at 14 hours they are completely soft.

Interesting Lesley!
I would have never thought you could freeze them.
Does it effect them at all having been frozen, then thawed?

No, we just thawed them out & reheated in a fry pan.
