Excellent with roast pork, chicken, fish, tempeh…Also good in sandwiches.  The recipe calls for some sugar when sautéing the onions; if you don’t want to use any, just cook the onions without for the amount of time specified–the onions won’t turn golden brown, but will still be tasty.

4 T butter, divided
5 c sliced sweet onions
1 – 2 T sugar, or to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
3 c (peeled) thinly sliced or diced apples

1. In a large skillet melt 2 T of the butter over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently until tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add sugar, salt, and pepper and continue cooking until the onions turn golden brown, another 10 minutes or so. If the onions start to burn, reduce the heat. Transfer onions to a bowl or plate.

2. In the same skillet, melt the remaining 2 T of butter. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add onion mixture to apples and stir to combine. Cook gently until heated through. Serve warm.
