I have a good feeling that a lot of our members at Instructables have probably never ever tasted what really good french onion soup tastes like because just like any good soup, its takes lots of sweat, tears, and time to make a really good French Onion Soup. As i've made some pretty good French Onion Soup in the past, I want to share with you a new technique of how to prepare French Onion Soup. (I believe its French because it supposedly involves the use of sherry in the Soup). The essentials of making really good french onion soup are:
-Not merely sweated or sauted onions, but rather a nice golden brown onion slivers
that have a bit of gooeyness, sweetness, and intensity of flavor due to converting the natural
starches within the Onion to nice Caramel overtones.
-Twice as much Onion as a regular recipe. I really love the onions and can't get enough of it.
-Piece of stale/Toasted bread to go on top of the French onion Soup. (Croutons)
-Time to simmer in all the flavors.
The recipe that i have been really successful with is:
: If your going to use Dry white Wine, Use 5lbs of Sweet Onion. Otherwise Any White wine
will do (and if your not 21 yet, white grape juice will do fine). Overall, i would recommend
users to cook with Yellow onions as A) they are more available and B) May not be as
sweet, but than again we don't want to eat candy soup do we?
