Dump whole onions with skin in slow cooker & get a delicious side to pair with any dish

Print this recipe
Believe it or not, you'll want to leave the onion skin on for this recipe! Start by washing the onions and drying them. Place them into a slow cooker to cook nice and slow for several hours. This slow-cooking process is what develops all those beautiful earthy flavors.
Cooking onions in the skin allows them to steam and roast in their own juices, locking in all of that goodness. The sugars in the onion begin to caramelize with the addition of brown sugar and apple cider vinegar. You'll find yourself putting this delicious dish on everything.
