      I've never caramelized onions before so I was a little worried that I'd burn something, but this was an easy recipe to follow and great-tasting to boot. I made this as a side to a curry chicken and it was a fantastic combination. Thanks for posting, this is a keeper!

      Outstanding recipe! I have made caramelized onions before, but never with the addition of honey and vinegar that adds a sweet depth of flavor to the already sweet onions. I decided to cook the onions in my crockpot overnight, then added the vinegar and cooked a little bit longer. We generously spooned this unctuous mixture onto a pizza crust and had a truly terrific lunch. Good job Sharon!!
