Caramelized Onions

Last night I made grilled cheese sandwiches with caramelized onions. I love caramelized onions. I'd probably eat tire rubber if it was topped with caramelized onions.

Since it can take a while to caramelize onions, can I make a larger batch and store them . . . or even freeze them . . . for use later? Can they be par-caramelized and stored/frozen and finished off to make the process more efficient when I want them?

I've not tried this myself but I've been tempted to.

You probably spelled it right. But the system just uses the spelling supplied by the users. Which is wrong in that link.

Carmel and caramel have been known to baffle the best of us. I have been wrong enough times that I think I finally got it, but don't take any side bets that! :~)

Yes, you can make a big batch and freeze. We have a product that takes caramelized onions. We buy our onions from a local farmer (he grows several rows of reds for us every year). We cook them in the oven in hotel pans (a dutch oven would work well). Once they are cooled, we scoop out the portion size and freeze. They thaw very quickly and are the same taste and texture as non frozen ones.

Thanks! I appreciate your input.
