    This recipe should have included how to carmalize onions as part of the recipe and not include it as a separate entity

      Slice up your onions, you can start with 2, and put them in your pan on medium heat. with 2 tbls of butter and around a tsp and a half of olive oil (it prevents the butter from burning). Stir until the onions start to sizzle then turn on low. Set a timer for 5 minutes and stir. Set a timer again for 5 minutes and stir. Repeat until the onions are carmelized. Yes, I know it’s long, but hey it’s so worth it. You can add up to 1 tbls of butter if necessary. I use this method with shallots when I make bacon jam.

    Sounds delish! Do you think fresh garlic would be ok or will it spoil faster? Garlic powder irritates my throat.
