Inspired by this Metafilter post
, I finally got around to making crock-pot caramelized onions. They are indeed wonderful and delicious, but now my wife is considering filing for divorce.
While the end-state caramelized awesomeness isn't so bad, the first few hours filled my house with chemical-warfare levels of sulfurous, acrid, distilled Essence of Raw Onion. 15 hours later, it's still here. She comes home in 8 hours and I'd like to still be married tomorrow.
So: What's your best solution to banishing the smell of raw onions? I am reluctant to start experimenting as I am scared of accidentally making it worse (eg, filling the house with the terrifying aroma of Chocolate Chip Onion Cookies).
