CARAMELIZED NEW YORK BOLD ONION GRAVY
New York Bold—an ultra pungent onion known as the “Onion with Attitude”-- will add zest and flavor to recipes this holiday season. “New York Bold will excite any holiday dish,” said Judy Queale-Dunsmoor, President of Sales and Marketing, for the company, which is a consortium of upstate onion growers.
New York Bold has come up with a new recipe perfect for holiday main dishes and “comfort food” cooking this winter: Caramelized New York Bold Onion Gravy. New York Bold onions have 50 percent higher sugar content than wimpy conventional onions, enhancing caramelization.
Makes 2 ½ cups
• 4 medium-large New York Bold Onions, peeled and sliced thinly along the longitudinal lines
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 3 cups chicken broth
• Wondra Quick-Mixing Flour (see Note)
Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan. Add onions and cook over medium-high heat, until onions start to brown on the bottom, stirring occasionally.
When onions are slightly softened and turning a deep honey brown, add ¼ cup broth.
Reduce heat, cover and continue cooking, adding more broth as needed to prevent the caramelized bits at the bottom of the pan from burning.
It should take at least 25 to 30 minutes to release the sugar in the onions and deepen the flavor. Pour the remaining broth in at the end.
Sprinkle about two teaspoons of Wondra flour over onions to cover surface lightly, then stir in. Repeat once or twice until gravy has desired thickness.
Note: Wondra Quick-Mixing Flour is an instant flour that dissolves more quickly than regular flour and is excellent for sauces and gravies.
