Recipe: Onion Confit

Caramelized onions are soft and full of sweet, sweet flavor. Onion confit adds the depth of red wine and a tangy note from Balsamic vinegar. Onion confit is like a caramalized onion marmalade... soooooo luscious! This recipe is worth making.  Extra can be frozen. So many dishes taste better with a spoonful of Onion Confit to top it off!

2 TBS butter

2 TBS olive oil

2 lbs.( about 8 cups) onions, peeled and thinly sliced

3 TBS sugar

4 thyme sprigs

salt and pepper

1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

1 cup dry red wine

6 TBS good balsamic vinegar

Heat butter and onion in a large dutch oven. Add onions, sugar, thyme and salt and pepper. Stir. Cover and cook for 30 minutes stirring occasionally, until the onions are very soft.
