Author Notes: This is an incredibly flavorful caramelized onion confit that incorporates a Morocco feel with raisins, cinnamon, and honey. It's great alone or as a topping for pork, vegetables, or a crostini. This is a great dish to make the day ahead or even two days, as allowing the flavors to meld together overnight just makes this dish even better. Definitely a crowd pleaser! —TheWimpyVegetarian
- 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 2 tablespoons brandy
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
