* This recipe makes a lot of dip - approx 500g, but it is very versatile. It can also be used as a spread, as a side sauce for meat or chicken, and as a garnish topping for baked potatoes, canapes and finger foods.

* Stores in the fridge approx 5 days in an airtight container

* If you are using a TM6, instead of the first and 2nd caramelisation step, you can simply follow the caramelised onion recipe on Cookidoo for the automated High Heat function, stop it at 10 minutes, add the step 2 ingredients, and restart the caramelization for the remaining 10 minutes.

Note: to remove any leftover caramelisation from the bowl, do a pre clean first, tip out the soapy water and pop enough white vinegar in bowl to cover the bottom. Let sit for 2 hrs then use the TM bowl brush to remove the residue.
