Here is a great technique, using your crockpot, for caramelizing sweet or regular onions, which you can then use for onion soup, or a delicious Caramelized Onion Lasagna recipe I am posting separately. I am guessing at the amount it makes.
- Put the butter in a 4 quart or larger slow cooker insert.
- Separate the onion slices into rings and add them to the slow cooker, lightly packing them down.
- Sprinkle the salt over and cover with the lid, (the cooker will be quite full).
- Cook on high until the onions are very soft and a deep caramel color, about 10 to 12 hours, stirring once or twice.
This recipe is wonderful!!! I used the onions IN & ON the Lentil Bulgar Pilaf I made for a coworker's birthday! I will never stand and stir onions again! The hint about freezing portions in a muffin tin and then placing in a freezer bag was also an excellent idea! Thanx for sharing!!!
These are fabulous! The onions come out this beautiful color of glazed brown. The flavor is deep and rich. I loved the method of cooking because I can make a double batch and freeze one. This is great with any type of barbequed meat too, especially Romaldo's Carnitas. I love this recipe, and want to thank you for sharing it. It's definately a keeper!
