What a wonderful weekend. Dinner with friends - knitting- a seven mile bike ride this afternoon and a delicious meal of French Onion Soup and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. I had a bag of tasty vidalia onions that I knew would be perfect for this special treat!
First I needed to get the onions ready to slice. It is amazing how easy the food processor slices all these onions
Next begins the process of caramelizing the onions! A little butter & olive oil- a sprinkle of sugar and two hours cooking time.
Patience is a must - the onions must be the color of carmel - which makes them even sweeter, but this takes time.
|Just beginning to turn brown|
|Look at that color!|
|Perfectly caramelized !|
Add the beef stock - sherry - a dash of aged balsamic vinegar, spices-
yes it is almost dinner time!
It was delicious and well worth the effort!!
