Caramelized Onions

I know that there are several recipes for this out on Zaar, but this is my absolute favorite. I think the balsamic vinegar gives it just the perfect touch. I usually make a huge batch of this and freeze them for easy future use.

Wonderful! I used just a tablespoon of butter. And we have a specialty store nearby that sells flavored balsamic vinegars, so I used the cherry one. My hubby doesn't like onions, but when I added some of these to the spaghetti sauce he asked what was different and then declared it the best sauce he's ever had. Thanks so much for sharing!
