We Be Jammin'... French Onion Marmalade

French Onion Marmalade 
Found on Pinterest

Makes abt 2 to 3 half pints 


3 large red or white onions, peeled, cut in half, and sliced into 1/4 inch slices 

1/2 cup olive oil 

1 teaspoon coarse or sea salt 

1/2 teaspoon black pepper 

2 bay leaves 

2 rosemary sprigs 

2 tablespoons soft brown sugar 

1/3 cup dry red wine 

1/3 cup red wine vinegar 

1/8 cup good-quality Balsamic Vinegar 

In a large pan over medium heat, heat up the olive oil. Add the sliced onions, tossing around to make sure they all have a coating of olive oil. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, until the onions start to color. 

Add the salt, pepper, bay leaves, and rosemary. Cook, stirring occasionally, an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until the herbs have wilted. 

Add the brown sugar, wine, wine vinegar, and Balsamic Vinegar.

Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; then lower the heat to low and let simmer for approximately 20 to 30 minutes until the liquid is dissolved and the onions are soft and sticky, stir constantly. 

Remove the rosemary and bay leaves; discard. 

Ladle mixture into jars to 1/8 inch headspace, remove air bubbles, wipe rims, and assemble lids. Process in a boiling water bath canner for 10 minutes


  1. That sounds amazing! What would you serve it with? I want to make this

  2. I've made this for years and it goes with nearly everything. I put it on bread as a snack, I've used it as a pizza topping, it's great on crackers, I will stir it into a bowl of whatever I happen to be eating if I think it needs to have more flavor, and of course... I've eaten it straight out of the jar with a fork =)
