Caramelized Onions in the Crockpot

8 large onions
4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
pinch salt

Slice onions 1/4-1/2" thick.

Add salt, butter and olive oil to crock pot.  Add as many onions to crock pot as you can fit.  I could only fit about 3/4 of my onions originally, but added the rest as the onions reduced.  Stir to combine.  Keep crock pot uncovered as onions cook and reduce. Stir onions often scraping the sides.

Total cook time is approximately 6-8 hours.  Remove onions once they are caramelized to your preffered taste, remove from crock pot.  If they start burning and become incredibly aromatic, be sure to check them.  Enjoy, they are so incredibly delicious.  I am going to make another batch.  Each batch makes approximately a pint of caramelized onions.
