Cooking with sugar is the key to developing a rich, golden brown color and sweet caramel flavor in onions. It is this process that produces the characteristic taste and appearance oj the soup.

Caramelizing onions

Cook the onions in the butter and oil for a few minutes, until soft. Add the sugar and continue cooking over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until the onions are golden brown.
