Description

Here is a quick, easy and very tasty condiment that would be great as a grilled steak or burger topping. You can use it as a ready-made alternative to sauteed or caramelized onions.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Medium Yellow Onions
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • ½ cups Red Wine Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Ancho Chile

Preparation

Peel the onions then cut them in half from pole to pole.

Cut the halves into half-rings, keeping them together, then cut the half-rings into thirds. You should have about 3 1/2 cups.

Melt the butter in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat.

Add the onions and cook them, stirring frequently, until they are just translucent (about five minutes).

Reduce the heat to medium, sprinkle the onions with the sugar and continue to cook them, stirring frequently, until they are just starting to brown (about five minutes).

Add the remaining ingredients and bring just barely to a boil.

Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until about 3/4 of the liquid has evaporated (about 8 minutes).

Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook another 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat, uncover and let cool.

Put the cooled marmalade in jars and refrigerate. It should easily keep for a week or two.

(Makes about 1 1/2 cups.)

I made this and it was really good. I pretty much followed the original recipe with the exception of adding 2 tablespoons of brown to tone down the vinegar taste. The result was a tangy, jammy and delish condiment. Will definitely be making this one again. I’m going to try and tweak it so that I can make a huge batch and can it.

Delicious! I’m always looking for something different to put on steak and when I came across this recipe I had to try it! My husband and I LOVE it. Next time I’m going to double the batch so we have some leftover and I’d love to try this on a burger. Thanks Patiodaddio for such an awesome recipe!

I made this awhile ago, but forgot to comment. We loved this and I made extra and canned it :) My 9 y/o daughter also raves about it!

Wonderful stuff! I had never heard of onion marmalade before and am so glad I stumbled over this recipe. Extremely easy, and so delicious. I had some on a piece of hot pumpernickel right out of the oven today, and what a lunch. Thanks a lot, patiodaddio.

Made this for hamburgers the other night. Very easy to make and nice spin on regular grilled onion. Thanks!
