  1. Put the Butter and all the Onions in a deep sided skillet or heavy pot over a low flame.
  2. Use a heat diffuser if you have one even heat is the name of the game.
  3. Turn the Onions in the pot every 15 min or so until they caramelize to a med gold, this took a couple 3 hours of low and slow.
  4. I use my meat tongs.
  5. Mix the Ginger and OPTIONAL Bullion with the Vinegars.
  6. Add to the pot, watch out for the fumes.
  7. Let it bubble slowly until thickened.
  8. Add the Brown sugar and water.
