Caramelized onions are a great addition to any cheese board or to a sandwich. If you’ve ever opened a jar of caramelized onions for a cheese board, and then had them sit in the fridge until they expired, then this recipe is for you!  It’s so easy to cook them in the Thermomix that you can just make up a batch any time you need them; while controlling everything that goes in them.
