Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make caramelized onion.
  • onions — you’ll need at the very minimum small 4 onions (or 3 large ones) since they shrink so much as they caramelize. I used small organic sweet onions but you can use any type of onions you have avaiable to you.
  • butter — I use unsalted butter.
  • oil — I use olive oil. Feel free to use a neutral oil of your choice.
  • salt — salt is optional but I like to add a tiny pinch to my onions once they’ve softened.
