I don't get it- caramelizing onions looks like it would be so easy, right??? But somehow, I'm always fucking it up, every time. I watched this video online (the guy is kinda cute!) and thought alright, I can do this. WRONG!!!
It was all going so well- I chopped the onions, added oil, butter and brown sugar.
I turned the heat on medium, often stirring the onions so nothing burns. The video dude told me that it would take about 30-40 minutes, and as he suggested, I waited patiently.
Minute 15. Starting to burn a little so I turn the heat down:
I leave the kitchen for FIVE MINUTES and this is what I came back to:
UGHHHHHH!!!! YAMAHOMO HELP ME!!!
Don't worry though, I am not one to waste and ended up salvaging some onions to make chicken liver pate. That's a whole other post that I'll write soon- it's my new favorite thing.
But for now I'm spending the day making curry- I'm gonna attempt to caramelize onions for it, so wish me luck!!!
