the most time consuming part of the recipe was to cook the onions.
the idea is to slowly cook the onions so that they caramelize as well as soften.
the recipe calls for thyme leaves or sprigs. that is one of the best parts of having an herb garden. it is so wonderful to walk out the door and clip fresh herbs as needed. luckily, thyme is an evergreen and has leaves in winter.
i picked the leaves off the stems and chopped them a little
the onions almost look like little strips of meat in this photo.
