This was excellent onion confit thanks Charishma. I made a half recipe, but accidently splashed extra vinegar into it. I liked it with the extra! I added a pinch each of chilli and cinnamon when I was seasoning it. We used this with home made chicken burgers. Yum.
This was a great recipe. I used regular sugar, and tried to reduce the butter a bit. It was hard to figure out the right amounts, instead of grams. I used it on BBQ chicken pizza, sandwhiches and a whole lot more. It was really great.
