french onion soup – oo-la la


  • Caramelized Onions
  • 6 to 8 Spanish onions (about 2 1/2 pounds) 3 to 4 inches in diameter, stem and root ends removed, peeled and left whole
  • 4 ounces butter (1 stick)
  • a 10-ounce can unsalted chicken or vegetable broth
  • In a slow cooker (crock pot), set on low, place onions, butter, and broth. Cook until the onions are deep golden brown and very soft–12 to 14 hours.
  • Drain and reserve the broth for the soup. Wrap the onions in plastic wrap and store in a freezer weight zip-seal bag for up to 2 weeks refrigerated, up to a year frozen.
