“A small condiment that goes well with pork or beef ... would also make a great topping for pizza, or would be good on sandwiches.”

  1. NOTE: About those onions -- 10 cups is somewhere between 3 and 4 very large onions. The recipe I took this from called for sweet onions. First time I made it, I used Vidalia -- and thought they made it a little bland. Next time I tried spicier brown onions, and thought it had a lot more flavor.
  2. In a LARGE skillet, melt butter. Add brown sugar and stir until it dissolves.
  3. Add onion and garlic to skillet. Stir to coat with butter/sugar mixture. Cover and cook over medium heat for at least 30 minutes; you can cook them much longer and it will only make it sweeter.
  4. Uncover and add vinegar to onion mixture. Cook, uncovered for at least 10 minutes. (I found I cooked it nearly 45 minutes, to try to reduce some of the liquid.).
  5. Add salt and pepper.
  6. Serve at room temperature or even chilled.
