It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe on the WOW Report but I’m inspired again after talking to my mom on the phone yesterday. Yes, I wished her a happy father’s day. My friends Andrew Schnider and Mathu Anderson stopped by the backyard to get GRILLED a couple of times this weekend. On their first visit, Mathu asked if I’d ever had or tasted ONION BUTTER. I’m always one to have my palate expanded and stimulated, especially by friends and family I enjoy eating with. So the next day I got up and ran to the Attwater Farmers market and stocked up on onions and had a go at it. When they came over the next day for lunch (and hot bread), we sat down and tried it together. Mathu’s note: Good, but put on for one more hour. And it was heaven. So super simple and sooooooo easy to make. Try it.
5 sweet Maui onions, diced small
1 red onion, diced small
Put all onions in pan, no butter, no oil, no seasonings – just the onions by themselves.
Put pan over heat source for 3 hours, medium heat.
If you’re like me, you’ll put it in a cast iron pot on HIGH heat and caramelize the fucker for 3 hours.
It’s so effing good. I ate almost all of it by myself. So sweet, so good, so gone. Thanks, Mathu.
