Sweet Caramelised Onion

I have been meaning to put this recipe on the website for a little while. Everytime I serve these delicious sweet caramelised onions I always get asked how I made them. It is a very simple dish once you know how, and the addition of sugar and brandy really makes a huge difference in the depth of flavour. If you don’t have brandy don’t worry, I have used bourbon before and that was fantastic also.

I like to have a jar of caramelised onion in the fridge ready for emergency use. They onions give all sorts of  dishes a lift. Take a look at this Bruschetta we were served at a Degustation dinner!

Even the good old bangers and mash is made better with my sweet caramelised onions.

So without further ado, I give you my step by step recipe for Sweet Caramelised Onion.
