While I was up at the farm last week, I took the time to sit at the computer & look up recipes. There is a pizza we love at the Driftless Cafe in town that has caramelized onions on it. They are so good. I've never made them before so I found an easy recipe. Just use your crock pot. No standing at the stove stirring the onions for 40 minutes. Cut about 3-4 onions (put in fridge before hand to keep your eyes from watering so much), melt a stick of butter in the crock pot, add onions & set on low for about 8 hours.
I used some right away on a homemade pizza & froze the rest. Putting serving size lumps of onions on a cookie sheet to freeze solid then moving to a freezer safe container. Now I have enough caramelized onions for six more pizzas.
Next, I will be drying onions and probably some garlic.
Here is a link to a great blog called Farmgirl Fare and her homemade pizza sauce. Great for using up those last tomatoes. Steve & I agreed that the pizza I made with the onions & homemade sauce was the best one yet.
We are getting some much needed rain at the farm today. We'll see if we had frost when we get there tomorrow...
