A Bowl of Onion First Aired 9/1/99

Postby Tymoria » Sat Feb 28, 2004 1:23 am

Alton digs up the truth about sweet onions, slices up the myths about the right way to cut the bulb without crying and fries up a mess o' onion for the soup with a cheesy hat.

Gotta love Mr. Yumion.. and the Forrest Gump parody.

I haven't attempted the soup myself, although comments on this board have said it's on the sweet side. Loved the show, however. And it sure boosted sales of electric skillets. My family always had (and used) one when I was a pup, and I had one myself, years ago. Made me nostalgic. The YumYun also got some additional work as a result of this show.

I'd like a single plum floating in perfume served in a man's hat.

I do want an electric skillet. another one. Long time ago, I had one but I only used it to make meat for burritos. That soup looks like heaven too - onions soup, cheese and toast...what more could anyone want?

I'm in the process of gathering the ingredients for this now. Any tips from anyone who is experienced with this would be greatly appreciated.

Don't make it.

or leave out the apple cider.

I ended up tossing it, it was so sweet. Even my husband, who will eat anything, wouldn't eat it.

I made it tonight. It was very rich and very tasty, and yes, very sweet.

Part of my problem was that my family's not much into wine, so the only white wine we had around was a dessert wine... Pretty good stuff, but it's already quite sweet. Add that to the sweetness from the apple juice...

Everyone enjoyed it, though. I think next time I'll replace the apple juice with another can of beef broth.


Easy, it is. Quick, it is not. It took me about an hour and a half to cook down my onions. But then again, I was making enough for 6 people (my dad and I eat for two... :) )

I'll definitely do it again someday. Probably right after next year's onion harvest, when I can get all the onions I want for free.

I liked this show, and I thought the soup was pretty good, but I couldn't get apple cider, so I just used off-the-shelf, less-powerful apple juice.

Or maybe the key is to use hard cider? I know that's not what AB said, but I can't imagine it wouldn't be good. All I know is, the cognac's not optional.

Loved the episode but the soup....I've never been so dissappointed in my life... okay that's extreme... but the soup was awful... leave out the apple juice cider whatever... just makes it way too sickly sweet... I threw out the first batch and made it again with chicken broth instead ... it was fine

I did this twice, and it was a disaster both times. Way too sweet the first time w/ 75% Vidialia/25% yellow & chardonnay. Way too bitter the second time with yellow/red onions & savingion blanc. The second one might have been over-caramelized though.

Both batches got tossed. Did give the house a heck of unique fragrance for 4-5 days each time.

Too bad onions are so bad for dogs, my pooch could have had his food "souped"-up for weeks!
