What oil is best for caramelizing onions? If you use extra-virgin olive oil (which is how I do it) be sure to choose a high quality oil (or even avocado oil).
Should you add sugar when caramelizing onions? It is easy to get sweet caramelized onions without sugar, but adding a touch of sugar does help the caramelizing process.
