Onion and Garlic Jam
This “jam” is naturally sweet because the sugars in the onions caramelize during long cooking times.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 12
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 4 cups chopped onions
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons tarragon vinegar
- 2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon leaves
- 1 recipe Roasted Garlic Spread
In large heavy saucepan, melt olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add onions and salt. Cook mixture, stirring, until onions are translucent.
Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are deep golden brown.
Add sugar, vinegar, and tarragon leaves; cook and stir for another 10 minutes. Stir in Garlic Spread and remove from heat.
Pour into containers, cover, and refrigerate until cold. Store in refrigerator up to 4 days.
You can serve this condiment cold with crackers or crudités like baby carrots and zucchini slices, or warm it up in a saucepan and pour over any type of cheese. It also makes a great pizza topping or sandwich spread. Or you can stir it into soups or serve it as a condiment with roasted beef or grilled chicken.
