I’ve long adored the sweet richness that caramelized onions offer to any dish, but making caramelized onions at home has always been tricky (and usually smoky). Recently, though, I stumbled across a phrase that caught my attention and led to an epiphany: “onion butter.”

Not only is the recipe simple, but along with a few adorable labels from Evermine, and a freezer, one can easily make several of this caramel deliciousness to give as gifts.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 10-12 onions, diced or sliced
  • a pinch of salt
  • water to cover
Instructions
  1. [img src=”https://bdn.evermine.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/IMG_5922.jpg” width=”680″ height=”510″ class=”alignnone size-full” title=”Edible Gifts: Onion Butter | Evermine Occasions | www.evermine.com”]
  2. Combine the first three ingredients in a large pot over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent. Add just enough water to cover the onions and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, for several hours until the onions soften, sweeten and turn a golden brown.

  4. Check often, especially after the onions have started to change color, to assure that the onions don’t burn. You may need to add a little water, periodically. Store your onion butter in canning jars and [url href=”https://www.evermine.com/labels/” target=”_blank”]label them sweetly[/url] for extra party cred. This onion butter, 8-ounce canning jars and vinyl [url href=”https://www.evermine.com” target=”_blank”]Evermine[/url] labels all freeze well, so you can save your precious onion butter for just the right moment.
