Sweet Red Onion Marmalade

I got this recipe from my produce box, Abundant Harvest Organics. Posting it here so that I can keep track of it and make it again — SO DELICIOUS! So far I have put it on my grilled cheese sandwich and put a bit on a cracker with cream cheese.  Although, honestly, I would probably even be content to eat this straight from the jar.

Sweet Red Onion Marmalade

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1/2 cup


  • 1/2 T Butter
  • 1 Sweet red onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Small clove of garlic (minced)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 t Salt
  • 1/2 t Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Dry red wine


  1. Melt a half tablespoon of butter in a sauce pan.
  2. Add one sweet red onion (thinly sliced), a small clove of garlic (minced), sugar, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes until the onion has browned.
  3. Add red wine vinegar (I did half red wine vinegar and white wine vinegar because I ran out of red wine vinegar) and dry red wine (I used port because I didn\'t have any red wine handy). Cook for about 10 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed by the onions and the mixture is sticky.
  4. Let marmalade cool then use on grilled cheese or roast beef sandwiches, over meat dishes, or with soft cheese and crackers. It should last in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
