The Top Tip You Need For Caramelized Onions
There are a lot of hacks in cooking, but cooking hacks for getting the ideal caramelized onions are few and far between. Luckily, there is a secret that'll help your onions caramelize perfectly, but it might not be the cooking trick that you'd expect, as writer Tom Scocca explains in his article, "Layers of Deceit."
Scocca examined many shortcuts to making caramelized onions in as little time as possible and called them all out as misinformative. He found only one writer to give the actual amount of time it takes to make caramelized onions — Julia Child — who gives the entire process a minimum of 35 to 40 minutes.
As writer Margaret Eby puts it: "The number one thing that goes wrong with caramelized onions is impatience." For this reason, it’s best to make time and patience your allies when cooking your next batch of caramelized onions, because there are just some things you can't rush.
