Zucchini Sticks with Sweet Onion Sauce

First, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium-sized frying pan over moderate heat, and add 1 medium sweet onion (about 1/2 pound), sliced.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, then caramelizes. This should take between 20 and 25 minutes, at medium-low heat. The lower the heat, the longer it takes, but the less likely you are to burn the onions.
When the onions are medium brown, remove them from the heat.
Place the following in a small food processor or blender:
all of the caramelized onions
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
Process until fairly smooth. Remove from the processor, and stir in 1 cup mayonnaise.

Zucchini Fries:

scant 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
garlic powder and paprika, a little of each

panko bread crumbs
1 zucchini

Cut up zucchini into fries, no need to peel.  Dip into flour, then into egg, then into seasoning mixture.  Place on greased pan.
Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, then flip, and bake for 10 more minutes.
