This slow cooker caramelised apple onion recipe is an accompaniment that can take your meals to the next level! Easy to make and flavourful without much, this paleo condiment is a must-make in your home.

I’ve made caramelised onions on this blog before, but I wanted to do something a little different this time. My next thought was adding a fruit to it – if you’re a regular reader, you’ll see that I LOVE adding fruits to savoury meals (makes me feel a little more 5* chef-y). So, I dumped some apples and onions in my slow cooker, gave it a toss and let it be overnight. I woke up to a sweet-smelling aroma and thanked God for good food.

By the way, Happy New Year! I know we’re in February but I have been missing quite a while, working on some other ventures. I’m now a personal chef and caterer! If you’re in the London, UK area, contact me to find out more! Just this Sunday, I exhibited at the SPACNation Entrepreneur Day! It was so amazing – people adored my food! I got so many eyebrow raises when I told them I made these plantain brownies with.. well plantains! By the way, are you following me on social media yet? You would have heard all about this haha (@whittypaleo).

A way to take this paleo caramelized onions and apples recipe to the next level is by making it into an apple onion chutney or apple onion jam. The texture is perfect once it’s slow cooked, all you need to do is add some spices like curry powder and cinnamon, some apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. To make it jammier, in the last 2/3 hours of cooking,  just leave the lid off a bit whilst cooking.

I hope you’ll enjoy this one, make sure to subscribe so you’ll know when the next recipe is out! I made it for my friend and she licked her plate (no joke!).

  • 2 kg onions (or 4 pounds, chopped)

  • 1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 2-3 tbsp honey
  1. Toss all ingredients in slow cooker and place on low for 8-10 hours.

You don’t have to chop your onions and apples finely, as it won’t affect the final result.

If you want a jammier texture, leave it longer but take the lid off about an inch whilst cooking.
