- 3 large sweet onions such as Vidalia sliced into 1/4 to 1/2-inch strips
- 8 tablespoons salted butter
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Put the onions in a 3-quart pot with a lid and barely cover them with water. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat, cover the pot, and simmer until soft and translucent but not mushy, about 7 to 10 minutes.
Drain the onions and put back into the pot.
Add the butter, cream, sugar, and salt, and cook over low heat until warm throughout.
