Some recipes call for caramelizing onions, apples, whatever.
Apparently, after heating for a while, a sudden change of state
occurs; caramelization

Can anyone describe the chemistry of this process?
Somehow, it seems the sugars concentrate.

Close. Maillard reaction. Unless you are roasting a thousand
