Simply put, this onion jam was so good that I just can’t wait any longer to post it. Which means you’re all getting a special Sunday night post. 🙂
I had a really elaborate and delicious burger planned to go with this, but when I went to put it all together I saw that my rolls were moldy. Ew. So I ate the burger on a plate slathered with this delicious onion jam. It wasn’t pretty, but it sure was delicious! The jam is sweet and tangy and flat out amazing. That’s really the only way I can describe it. Go ahead and make it, I promise you’ll love it. Unless you hate onions, in which case I’m not making any promises. Even though you’ll probably still like it, since it’s just that good.
Obviously it goes great on a burger, but I think it would also be really good on a hot dog, steak, chicken breast, roast beef sandwich or just about anything. You might even find yourself eating it by the spoonful.
- 1 tsp butter
- 2 onions, thinly sliced
- 1/2 c apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 c balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 c dark brown sugar
- sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
Melt butter in a sautee pan over medium heat. Add the onion slices and cook, stirring occasionally, until they soften and begin to caramelize – about 10 minutes. Add vinegars and brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vinegars reduce and mixture has a thick, jam-like consistency – about 15 minutes. Taste, and adjust seasonings if needed.
Yields 1/4 cup.
