Did it. Added the baking soda and sugar in the beginning. I shrank the recipe because I only used one large onion and adjusted the other things accordingly. From one LARGE onion, I wound up with about 5 Tablespoons of gross onion mush. Seriously, it started mushing almost at once and turned weirdly yellow but it tasted alright.. Not really GOOD but alright.. a little sweet and oniony. So I kept cooking until it got about the right color and it tasted AWFUL.
Yeah I'm a bit late replying aren't I? I realize it would get muddled on pouring, was just considering the drama of setting a large pitcher, beautifully layered, on the table. What happens after that I don't mind.
