Onion Confit
Recipe Type: Condiment
Cuisine: French
Serves: About 1½ cups
Onion confit is both one of the easiest and most sophisticated condiments you will ever make.
  • 2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp caraway seeds (optional)
  1. Add butter and olive oil to a large skillet and heat over a low flame. Add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and translucent, 15-20 minutes. If onions begin to dry out, add a tablespoon of water.
  2. Add sugar, stir to dissolve, and add vinegar and caraway seeds (if using). Continue cooking over low heat, stirring occasionally, until onions are pasty and caramelized, about 15 min.
  3. Onion confit can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for up to one week.
