An aside about caramelizing onions

I am making some caramelized onions as part of dinner tonight and had time to take a few pictures along the way. I thought I’d share them with you so you have an idea of exactly how long it takes to do the job properly.

While I started with 5 pounds of onions in the photos I’ve had it take basically the same amount of time to do it with 1 onion.

Finished caramelized onions (at 50 minutes).

At the end we ended up with about 3 cups of caramelized onions. The final weight was about 1 1/2 pounds.
