Greetings from Jersey

Have just dicovered this Forum.

Years ago, The Motley Fool (originally an Investment/Banking site) had a great Food area, but it was "modernised" away...

A chance conversation with al old friend reminded me of an Ethiopian girl who worked here, telling me of her family chicken dish that required onions (about 2kg) slowly fried overnight to a paste, chicken added spiced and enjoyed.

Has anyone experience of this?

Hi Jersey! Welcome to DC! The people here are first class, and very responsive.

I’ve never heard of this method either. You “fry” the onions overnight? That sounds messy! Do you have to stay up all night to cook them? How do you avoid burning them? It sounds quite fascinating! Chicken is my go-to protein, and I love finding new ways to cook it!

Welcome Arfer!

yummm... sounds like it would work in a slow cooker with the onions. Check out Ethiopian spices - Berbere (sp?) sounds like it might fit.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

Where in Jersey, the Taylor Ham side or the Pork Roll side?

I was born in Glassboro, Pork Roll territory.

I believe the onions are cooked to caramelize them, you can do this in a slow cooker overnight...put them outside or in the garage if you don't want the whole house to smell of onions.
