I have moved away slightly from my song titles for this post. This title comes from Episode 1 of Black Books when Manny swallows the Little Book of Calm. In my head my blog post sounds like an excerpt from there – perhaps the Little Book of Calm Cooking?
You may already do this, but next time you are cooking onions, add a bit of salt as they are cooking. This helps to break them down quicker. Be reserved with the salt as you don’t want to over salt. Taste for salt before you serve up the dish from the pan or pot. Add more as necessary.
