How to Caramelize Onions in a Solavore Sport Solar Oven

Caramelized onions are a wonderful ingredient for adding deep flavor to your recipes. The solar oven is an easy, hands off way to let those onions cook down and have the sweetness develop.

Thinly slice two large onions. If you have one, a mandolin is a great tool for the job. Place the sliced onions in your Sport graniteware pot and drizzle one tablespoon of olive oil over the onions. Sprinkle with some kosher salt.

Place the pot in the Solavore Sport and let the onions cook for several hours. You don't have to worry about burning, just let the onions cook to your desired level of caramelization.

Your caramelized onions will be delicious on a pizza, sandwich, or a frittata. They freeze well if you don't have plans to use them right away.
