Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Ooooh. Looks like the math is wrong: 1/8th tsp does not equal .04 tsp, so the calorie count is wrong, as well.
Also, I wouldn't try this in a non-stick pan - not good for the pan, and caramelization doesn't happen in non-stick as well as iron or steel. Caramelized onions are delish!

I am really excited about this.... I have necer thought about using water... just a question, do you think that if I used low fat margarine, it would still work, and bring the fat content down? Submitted by:

Does caramelizing onions change their nutritional breakdown other than the addition of the butter? Does the sugar percentage increase as the water is sweated out? Submitted by:

Another way to save on the dreaded butter fat is to start with a spray of olive oil, then just add a little butter for taste. Submitted by:
