6 cups onions, peeled, halved and sliced into 1/8th-inch thick slices
1 stick butter


Place onions in the crock pot with the butter on top.

Leave cover slightly askew and cook on high heat for 1-2 hours until liquid has evaporated. Cover and cook on low an additional for 8-10 hours. Stir a few times during cooking. Onions should be dark brown.

If desired, add a splash of balsamic vinegar and pinch of white or brown towards the end of the cooking time.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I love caramelized onions! This way takes a long time but it gets them pretty tender. Add a pinch of salt to it while it cooks.
