Caramelized Onion Relish

One of my favorite appetizers is caramelized onions. I made them recently for a party and they were a big hit. Slow cooked to bring out all the sweetness, they can be served with crusty breads, cheeses, smoked meats or crackers. I sometimes spread them on French bread and top with cheese then bake until toasty. They cook down a lot, so make plenty. I add them to pasta dishes and soups, too. You can also freeze leftovers.

Caramelized Onion Relish

2 lbs. Onions, chopped

3 T. oil

1 t. salt

2 T. brown sugar

¼ c. balsamic vinegar

Dash red hot pepper sauce



Sauté onions in oil with salt over low heat for 35-45 minutes. Onions should begin to caramelize and brown without burning. Add remaining ingredients and cook slowly another 15 minutes. Adjust seasonings, if needed and serve warm with crusty bread, crackers or smoked meats.
