comment Is there a spice that is hot and colorless?
It worked very well. All I had was a long green pepper (not very hot). I perforated it and soaked it in vodka for 6 hours. The vodka got quite hot. There is a noticeable smell and taste of green pepper though.

No, I just want to spice up a drink without affecting it's color.

comment Why sweat but not brown?
When you wrote "You generally don't brown vegetables during the preparation of a recipe" I was in total agreement. Coincidentally, I've just finished reading "50 Great Curries of India" amazon.com/GREAT-CURRIES-INDIA-PANJABI-CAMELLIA/dp/1856266966/… (a great book by the way). It appears that many Indian Curry recipes use browned onions as an ingredient for flavor and as a thickening agent. -- I'm not arguing on your very good answer; just providing additional information on the matter.

I've also updated the question to compare sweating to sauteing... That why I had tagged the question with the "cooking technique" tag in the first place.

thanks for that good answer. Note that my question is not specific to onions. But I suppose the your answer also applys to celery or other veggies that we typically sweat. I edited the question to be less "onion specific".

comment How long can i keep home made caesar dressing?
@daniel: I see. I have updated my question with the full ingredients list. There is also lemon juice in the dressing and that certainly affects shelf-life...
