Onion Sauce

Onion sauce was mentioned all over the Redwall universe and was poured over a half dozen different dishes and cooked into another several. I recommend using sweet onions for this recipe, but white onions would also work.

Onion Sauce

Prep time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
Total time: 50 minutes

Yield: about 1 1/2 cups of sauce

  1. Slice onion into thin strips
  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and saute the onion for about 10 minutes, or until it starts to soften
  3. Cover the saucepan and lower heat to medium low, then cook onion for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 or so, until the onion is really soft and starting to caramelize
  4. Stir flour into onions, then add remaining ingredients to the saucepan
  5. Bring to a boil and keep there for 15 minutes, or until sauce is thickened
