Bitches Be Cooking Caramelized Red Onion Jam.

Not to be dramatic but the worst thing that could ever happen to someone in a grocery store happened to me this weekend: my favorite item was nowhere to be found.

I was strolling my local Trader Joe’s searching high & low for their Roasted Garlic & Onion jam, and alas it just wasn’t there.

After a brief, but intense breakdown, I decided I could do one of two things: literally die or try my hand at making it.

And since you’re here on SnaxNTheCity.com, guess which one I did?

This recipe is easier than I expected, it’s mostly just letting the onions down & stirring occasionally.

Want to see how I made my new go-to condiment?

Check out the recipe below!

 

Two large red onions, sliced

Two cloves of garlic, crushed

Two tablespoons of honey mustard

Six tablespoons of brown sugar

1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar

1/2 cups of red wine

1 1/2 cups of beef broth

4 tablespoons of olive oil

Fresh Thyme

Fresh Bay leaves, 2

In a large pot, add the olive oil, sliced onions & garlic, and cook on medium heat uncovered for 10 minutes.

jam 4

Then add mustard, sugar, vinegar, & broth, stir to combine & cover the pot.

Turn the heat down & let it go for about 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes, add the thyme & bay leaves, & stir the mixture.

Add 1/4 cup of water & let the jam reduce for another 60 minutes, with the top off slightly.

jam 9

After 60 minutes, the mixture should be reduced to a jam-like texture.

Scoop the jam into a can of your choice & refrigerator for up to 2 weeks!

Enjoy this caramelized red onion jam on burgers, grilled cheeses, or if your ~fancy~ as a base of a crostini.

Happy jamming!
