Yield

Makes 5 cups

Ingredients

1 bottle (12 ounces) balsamic vinegar
1 bottle (12 ounces) white wine vinegar
3 tablespoons arrowroot or cornstarch

  2. Place onions in slow cooker. Stir in vinegar mixture; mix well. Cover; cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours or HIGH 4 to 6 hours until onions are no longer crunchy. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
