Carmelized Onions the Easy Way

Who doesn't love Carmelized Onions? You can use them on top of meatloaf. You can make French Onion Soup with them. 

There are many ways to enjoy Carmelized Onions. But I hate standing at the stove for hours, making sure they don't burn but have reached that yummy sweetness. 

So I use the Slow Cooker method. It is so easy and the result is amazing. Here's how to do it.

I like to do a whole bag of onions so that's about 10 onions. 

You also need 6 Tbsp. of melted butter and 1 tsp of salt (I like to use Sea Salt)

Peel the onions and slice them into thin pieces. If the onion is large cut it in half first then slice. 

Put the sliced onions in your slow cooker. 

Add 1 tsp salt (I use Sea Salt) and 6 Tbsp melted butter. 

Mix well.

Turn your Slow Cooker to LOW and let it go for 8 to 10 hours. Check the onions every so often and give them a stir.

When they are done (nicely browned and with juice) you can freeze them in small quantities for later use or start cooking with them right away. I like to freeze them with a bit of juice in each container but some people like to freeze the juice separately.
