Caramelized Onions

Raw onions have a sharp, spicy taste, but once they are caramelized, they are sweet, soft and sticky and have this wonderfully comforting smell and taste. The sweetness of the onion is brought to the forefront. Delicious. Caramelized onions are a great addition to so many dishes like sandwiches, burgers, soups, tarts, terrines, pastas and the list goes on.

You will need:
2 large onions, cut in half, then sliced (about 6 cups sliced)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Sliced Onions
This will take about 45 minutes. Heat a large skillet or pot, over medium low heat. You want to make sure the burner is not on high or else the onions will burn. Let the onions take their time to caramelize, so that that entire sweet flavor is brought out slowly.
Onions Getting Translucent
Add 3 tablespoons olive oil to the hot skillet, and then add the sliced onions. Make sure that all the onions are well coated with the olive oil. You will notice that they get translucent, that should take a few minutes. Then add 1 teaspoon of salt and stir occasionally. The onions will start breaking down in size and getting soft. Just make sure the onions don’t stick to the bottom of the skillet so you may have to stir pretty often. 
Starting to Caramelize
If you find that they are, just scrape them gently from the bottom of the skillet. After about 30 minutes, you will notice the onions have started to get nice and brown.

At around 45 minutes, your onions are done. VoilĂ . How easy was that?
