Just a quick update on the foolproof baked onions that I embarked upon in my last post.
I'd love to tell you that they were incredible.
That they melted in the mouth and that I'd 'never cook onions any other way again'.
The lack of any other ingredient made their flavour stronger and more pronounced.
Truth is that after an hour in the oven they were soft and indeed a bit squidgy.
But sadly they didn't taste of much at all.
Apart from singed baking parchment.
Maybe it was the type of onion.
Or my lack of onion cooking knowledge.
So the only thing to do was to put them in some pretty pots.
And there they remain.
Until I need a recipe that calls for a slightly singed onion.
Onward and upward.
