Ingredients
Bolded items available at Dewig Meats
  • 2-1/2 pound bag Coloma Frozen Foods Diced Onions
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
Instructions
  1. Place onions in a 4-6 quart slow cooker. (We prefer to use Slow Cooker Liners, which we sell at Dewig Meats. It save a lot of mess.)
  2. Add all other ingredients. Mix well so onions are coated with the melted butter.
  3. Cover, and cook on low for 10 hours, stirring occasionally.
  4. If desired, for a deeper color, cook uncovered for an additional 2 hours.
  5. After cooking, drain the onions in a colander. Let drain for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Tips:
  1. Using the entire 2-1/2 pound bag of onions seems like a lot, but when the onions are caramelized, they reduce greatly.
  2. The size of your slow cooker is important. Your slow cooker must be at least half full, or the onions will burn. If you decrease the amount of onions you are cooking, use a smaller slow cooker.
  3. The caramelized onions freeze well after cooking.
