Onions have wonderful flavor, and this recipe plays on their sweet side. Serve as a condiment—on top of burgers, in a sandwich, or with cheese and crackers.
Makes 3/4 cup Prep Time 15 minutes Cooking Time about 1 hour and 30 minutes
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cups thinly sliced white onions
(from about 680 grams)
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon thyme, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
1 Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat.
2 Add onions and sauté until softened, about 10 minutes.
3 Reduce heat to medium low, add water, cover and cook until onions turn a deep golden brown, about 1 hour. You will need to stir every 10 minutes, increasing regularity once the mixture has thickened and darkened. If the mixture gets too dry, it will burn easily. Keep watch and add water when needed.

5 Place in prepared containers, and seal tightly. This will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks; once opened, consume within a week.
