Cooking Technique: Caramelize

Vegetables like onions are pretty hard to eat raw (except for in salsa right?!) but are a really yummy when caramelized! 

Caramelizing is when you cook food until its sugars (or carbohydrates) turn brown. Go ahead, cook an onion on low heat for a little while and watch it turn brown and soft. This usually takes about 10-20 mins depending on your heat setting. 

Take a whiff and then a bite — we’re talking CARAMEL. If you missed it the first time, that’s SUGAR! and it’s a natural sweet flavor from a whole food that’s A-OK for your body!
