See what I mean?  Well, for grilled onions, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar do the trick.

    Instead of sugar, I made an awesome balsamic reduction with organic Balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and smashed garlic. After reducing the liquid over med-high to half of it’s consistency, it not only thickens but is hearty AND sweet!! Added to onions after grilling.

    These onions would go awesome in a french onion soup – just add beef stock and thyme and voila! :)
