Caramelized Onion Dip

Enjoy this kitchen-tested recipe packaged in Amazing Appetizers called Caramelized Onion Dip.

It takes approximately one hour to fully caramelize onions in order to achieve the rich, dark color and incredible flavor that make them such a welcome addition to so many dishes.

However, that dark color won’t work for this recipe. Here, the onions are cooked just until they are a beautiful golden brown and then given a boost of flavor with the addition of apple cider vinegar and real maple syrup. The result is a visually appealing and tasty dip your friends and family are going to love!

Tip: Avoid slicing the onion too thin to prevent over-browning. Aim for consistent one-quarter inch slices instead.
