Maple and onion jam is sweet and savory. It makes a great foodie gift. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.
In an 8 inch skillet (I use my cast iron) heat the olive oil and add the onions. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or until the onions become translucent. Reduce the heat to medium low and add salt, thyme and pepper. Cover the skillet and cook for another 10 minutes. Increase heat to medium and add maple syrup. Bring to a boil and lower heat just a bit so you keep it at a simmer. Cook uncovered another 15 minutes. At this point most of the liquid should have evaporated. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the vinegar.
Ladle the mixture into hot sterilized canning jars (I used the 4 ounce kind) leaving a 1/4 inch head space. Wipe off the jar rims with a damp clean towel and adjust the lids. Process in a water bath for 10 minutes. Remove from the water bath and cool. Wait for the lovely ping of the lid when it seals.
This makes about five 4 ounce jars.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
