"This is an easy onion jam that is incredibly versatile. It enhances anything from rice or barley dishes to spreading on a piece of bread. Great accompaniment to chicken as well. You can substitute sherry vinegar for the balsamic vinegar."

  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion in hot oil until soft and caramelized, 10 to 12 minutes.

Reduce heat to low and cook until mixture thickens and reaches desired consistency, about 30 minutes.

This was very easy but a little more time consuming than I was expecting. I sliced the onions instead of chopping them because I thought it would look prettier than the chopped on the appetizer...

I lost my onion jam recipe & was looking for a replacement. This fit the bill nicely! I used red onions, added a pinch of salt & cut the sugar down to about a tablespoon.. YUM!!!
