Onion Marmalade

What's that?! Onion Marmalade?!

Yes. Onion Marmalade.

We often think of marmalade as a sweet citrus spread. Actually, marmalade refers to its preparation method. Bits of rind are embedded in clear jelly. In this case, the jelly is tart and savory.

Use this as a spread for sandwiches or as an accompaniment to meats. This is the spread used in the charcuterie plate.

Onion Marmalade

1 tablespoon butter
3 medium yellow onions, sliced
¼ cup dark brown sugar
½ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup apple cider vinegar
pinch each: allspice, clove, ginger, cinnamon, pepper and salt

Melt butter in large skillet over medium low heat. Add onions.  Cover and cook until onions are translucent, but not brown.  Uncover. Add remaining ingredients. Stir.  Cook, uncovered, until thickened.
