Caramelised Onion

November 02, 2010
Have you seen onion ....this.... BIG??

compare the size of Mr H Jr and Miss E hands to our 'ginormous' onions?? :)
drum roll

.....all came from this tiny vegetable patch :)

...... No!! we have not been feeding our onions with steroid... :0 ...but organic seaweed and fish fertiliser...and of course with some Tender, Loving, Care...may be too much TLC :)
So when the harvest was good and in abundance...  plus summer is lurking round the corner which translate to good weather...
mercury is rising to 33C today and 35C tomorrow...I am melting away!!!!... 

Its  time to head out and enjoy Alfresco dining ... cart out our BBQ set... start the fire ... and make some caramelised onions... the smell of onions sizzling on the BBQ plate is heavenly... yum...yum...   

  • Red Onion - thinly sliced
  • balsamic vinegar
  • sugar
  • olive oil
Mix the onion with balsamic vinegar and sugar. Set aside. Add about 3 tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan or wok or even on the Barbie, add onion and keep stirring until it caramelised... Serve with steak or hotdog or burger...

psst... I forgot to weigh the onions therefore all the quantity were based on my good judgement ;P
