Really, I mean it. Onions are awesome. They make so many foods better. You can make them sweet or savory. Seriously AWESOME. (Aside from being able to make me cry anytime I am in the same room).
If you, like me, love onions then this Onion Jam is for you! This is something I like to make at least a double batch and keep it on hand. I use it on everything from grilled meats and fish to pizza. If you want something really easy to impress guests, this is it. I have people who mention it for weeks after trying it. Here goes…
Onion Jam with Habanero
(adapted from the Mustards Grill Napa Valley Cookbook)
1 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 cups sliced onions
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons red wine
2 tablespoons water
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons Habanero Jelly
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook 5-8 min until soft and translucent.
Reduce heat to low and add all additional ingredients.
Simmer on low to medium low for about 20 min until thick and sticky.
Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate. Serve chilled (or add to anything you love).
Make it. Try it. ENJOY!
Oh and, let me know what you like to serve it with!
