To be honest I have never really liked onions. Sure I’d eat them if they were chopped up really fine and thrown in a dish, but I never really made onions to eat along side my meals. I was also pretty disappointed when my CSA was filled with onions every week. What was I going to do with all of these onions? Well I started out small my just sauteing them or making Onion and Bacon Jam and ending up LOVING onions. Really shocking for me! Sauteing only put a small dent in the number of onions I had each week…plus it was a pain to make every time I wanted onions. I decided I needed a recipe that would make a lot of onions at once that I could use all week for meals. That sounded like a job for my slow cooker and it worked perfectly! The onions had so much flavor and they stored well in the refrigerator during the week. Anytime I wanted to add onions to a dish I would take out a spoonful or two and throw it in the dish toward the end of the cooking time just to reheat or I’d reheat the onions to top my pork chops or chicken breast with it. Perfect and quick!
