Family-Favorite Caramelized Onions

This recipe was passed down to me by my mother-in-law. After a few tweaks these onions are better than ever and, to my husband's chagrin, there are rarely any leftovers. They can easily be made ahead and reheated. —Sharon Gibson, Hendersonville, North Carolina

    I'm a huge onion fan. This a simple recipe for very tasty caramelized onions. I love the use of jarred whole pearl onions. It certainly speeds up the cooking process.
