Cut the ends off the onion, split it in half and peel. Thinly slice.
Heat butter and olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sliced onion. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
Once the onions start to brown, turn the heat down to medium-low. Cook for another 10 minutes, stirring often.
Once the onions are totally softened and golden, turn the heat down to low. Cook for an additional 15 minutes until the edges are beginning to darken and the texture becomes jam-like.
Season with ½ tsp of salt or to taste.
