I just found the world’s easiest recipe for caramelizing onions. (3 lb onions, 1 stick butter…put it in a crock pot on low for approx 8 hours, until it’s caramel colored!) I know I can freeze these.


But, if I knew how to can, could I can them? I don’t know if butter is “can-able”. (Is that a word?)

The original recipe had salt in it. I didn’t use any, and I used salt-free butter (sweet butter) too. Don’t know if that would make a difference? I like a lot of salt, my DH a lot of pepper, so rather than cooking something one or the other of us likes and the other doesn’t, I do a weird thing: I don’t cook with either most of the time.

Thanks in advance!

    I just made crock pot caramelized onions last night with butter. Mine are being frozen. They can be canned but you must use a pressure canner.

    Thanks! Had you made the onions before? Why pressure canned rather than other wise? See…I don’t know anything about canning (obviously)!

    If you made them following my “recipe” do you like them?

    Thanks again–

    They must be pressure canned because onions are low in acidity therefore they are not safe to can in a boiling water bath. Aside from freezing them, if you don’t want to pressure can them, you can dehydrate them. Drain all the juicce from them. Save the juice and freeze, wonderful flavor. Then spread the onions on your dehydrator trays and dry until crispy. Delicious.
