Maybe my daughter is a weirdo, but she loves onion syrup – and not only ‘cause I tell her it’s good for her, but ‘cause she actually enjoys the taste (at least I think, huh). And since I do, too, I think I just might share this quick “recipe” with y’all.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Waiting time: 3-4 hours or more
The amount of syrup will vary depending on how juicy your onions are. I got 1/3 cup of syrup.
- 1 organic onion
- Organic honey (for example buckwheat honey)
- Thinly slice your onion.
- Place your slices in a dish and cover them with honey.
- Set it aside for a few hour then press the excess of juice from your onion.
As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
“You’re making me hungry! I love your recipes and must admit that I would like to try this one. I will print it and use it when we start our new country life in the summer (we’re planning on living in a van). I usually make onion syrup to use for vinaigrette dressing because my hubby doesn’t like vinegar. But your recipe seems really easy and quick! Thanks for sharing.”
“My first time making this and it was REALLY good. I used ripe red delicious and golden delicious apples and mine has more of a flavor than what I’ve had before. I’d like to try some other types of apples the next time. The only thing that I changed was that after I boiled the onions, I put them into a strainer to remove excess honey from dripping off of them, instead of just leaving them in the pan where it dripped off. That made my house smell amazing for hours.”
“My husband doesn’t like vinegar, so I use onion syrup with vinaigrette dressing on a salad or as a sauce for pork or chicken instead.”
“I always make the onion syrup with the onions from my garden, which are very juicy (yay!). Needless to say, it’s really good!”
“I love this recipe.”
“I think this is a very easy recipe that can be made quickly. It also makes a nice gift.”
“I have used this recipe several times and have never had a problem with the taste. I have even used it as a gift for friends who love onions.”
“It’s so easy to make and full of flavor. I’ve made it a few times now and it really is delicious.”
“I use it as I bake our bread loaf, spread on top for an extra special treat….delicious!”
“This was very good, but I wouldnt measure how much to put in since the sweetness varies from the onion itself.”
And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
