Caramelized Onions

Cooking Light
Serve these delicate cooked onions as a side or as a pizza topping. Or toss them with pasta, shredded Asiago cheese, and fresh herbs. They also make a fantastic addition to risotto. Use the skimmed onion-scented butter to flavor stocks or stews, or to spread over toasted slices of French or Italian bread. To ensure maximum flavor, cook the onions the full 24 hours.
