Can we make a suggestion? The next time you have a spare hour and are looking for a simple kitchen project, brown up a big batch of caramelized onions. While this is a relatively simple task, it does take time — typically 45 minutes to an hour — and requires frequent attention. So catch up on a favorite food podcast, or do the dishes during the downtime, and know that your efforts will be rewarded with a pile of glossy, robustly flavored onions that are sure to add spunk to meals throughout the week.
