"A family favorite. Expect a few wrinkled noses maybe at the title, but result is worth the effort. Maybe not for beginning cooks since there's a couple potentially tricky steps. Serve a cup of jam over a bar of cream cheese with crackers, or as a spread for meat sandwiches. Keep in refrigerator in covered container for up to two weeks."

onion, coarsely chopped
ground black pepper to taste
red wine vinegar
When I added the onions to the pan, the sugar syrup pretty much seized to a big clump (I suspect from the water in the onions). I just kept breaking it apart, and it finally melted down. After that, it took about 40 minutes to reach the jam consistency, but it was worth the wait. We had this on sliders, and it was so good. I have some leftover, so I'm going to try it on a cream cheese chunk to have with some crackers. Good job Wendy Marie. UPDATE 4.16.12 Made another batch of this, and slathered it onto a ciabatta roll with turkey, swiss cheese, lettuce & tomato. It was delicious.
Omgosh! First I tried making this with brown sugar.Bad move, Burned it! Second time I used white sugar, turned off the flame on stove and it Burned again! 3rd X was a charm. This was Really good! I grilled brauts and ate them with flour tortillas. Liked the sweet n sour relish on dogs. Thank you Wendy Marie
I did like it. However, it didn't look very pretty. I don't think it ever REALLY jells like jam. So be carful to not over cook it. I probably over cooked! If I was to have a BBQ and invite family and friends, I would make it again. Yet, 4 cups of onion only made a little over 8oz. Also, my sugar seized up also and I just kept on it . . . it all breaks up!
Searched through many recipes and decided on this because it was easy. WOW!! It's a keeper. I also agree with another reviewer,next time will chop onions smaller. I'd suggest a 1/4" dice. Mine were 1/2" so halfway through the cooking process, I used a hand masher and mashed them finer. Only had 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar so used apple cider vinegar to make 1/2 cup. Can't be rushed though, it did take about an hour and half from start to finish and worth the time. Enjoy!
This is so good! My onions took about two hours to reduce to a thickened consistency. Great caramelized onion flavor. I enjoyed it first with some turkey kielbasa. Will keep on hand.
I didn't have red wine vinegar but had balsamic so used that instead. This was quite good - except using the balsamic causes the mixture to turn almost black. I'm going to use it at an upcoming July 4th cookout to accompany a cheese board.
After searching extensively online for an onion jam/chutney recipe, I decided to try this one, as it had only a few ingredients, and I wanted my first venture into onion jam to be an easy one. The end result was delicious, we had it on mashed potatoes for supper, and I will have some tomorrow for lunch on crackers with cream cheese. Being jam, it is a bit sweet, but the tartness of the vinegar balances it out nicely. My only critique would be to chop the onions more finely to make it easier to spread if you want to use it as such.
I am making this right now! I had a ton of onions, w/no idea what to do w/them, so I jumped on the internet to look for ideas. Being the internet, there are a million & 1 choices. I've diced & froze several, making a goulash & of course, making Onion Jam...and (obviously ;) chose this recipe. When I 1st saw the recipes I was nah, that doesn't sound vry good but I kept reading more & more & since hubby & I luv onions so much I figured y not?! I did have the same problem that others mentioned about the sugar seizing on me & that was my fault bc I thought that I had the pan way too hot & removed it frm the fire. But, again, as others said it jus took a lil effort & time to get it melted back dwn. I took a sm taste (b4 & aftr) adding the vinegar & it is vry tasty indeed. I can't wait to try it on all kinds of things. If it comes out as well I think its going to :-) I will have to dbl the recipe nxt time (or possibly triple. I jus checked it & it doesn't make nearly as much as I thought it would) TY for sharing ur recipe!
