Real French Onion Soup

When made properly this is melt in the mouth magic. So good I've even eaten it cold spread on bread! The beef stock must be of really good quality (the little sachets of jellified ones are best) and the onions will need to be treated with your loving time. That's the secret to a good French onion soup, the long slow cooking of the onions which eventually reduce down to almost nothing so don't be alarmed at the amount used, although it is sure to induce a good cry. If you're going to make this, do it properly, you must have Gruyère cheese and crusty French bread. For this there are no substitutes. Follow the rules and you'll achieve pure alchemy
