Yes – we still have weekly markets! Come out and enjoy the bounty of autumn from our vendors through the end of October. OBFM will switch to monthly markets during winter starting in November.

Caramelized onions are a great flavor booster for a wide assortment of dishes any time of the year, but their golden brown hue and rich, complex taste seem to pair perfectly with autumn. Top a grilled sausage with them, garnish grilled pork, add to a grilled cheese sandwich, spoon in a bowl of Brunswick Stew, or make a dip by incorporating in with sour cream. Here’s how I make them.

Peel and finely slice 2 large white or yellow onions. In a large saute pan over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil  and heat. Add the sliced onions and a dash of salt and cook, stirring occasionally with a non-metal spoon. For 8-10 minutes. Onions should soften, become translucent, and begin to brown; do not burn. 

Reduce heat to low , add 4 tablespoons white wine, and cook another 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Onions should be soft and browned and wine should be absorbed. Add another dash of salt and pepper. Serve hot, room temperature, or cold.
