That’s right- jam is not only for fruit, and it’s not only for breakfast. A condiment for all kinds of dishes and cuisines, sweet and sour, saucy onions just may become the new mainstay on your dinner table.


2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

3 each large yellow onions, small dice

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup apple cider vinegar

1 each rosemary sprig

2 each dry bay leaves

1 each thyme sprig

to taste sea salt

to taste freshly ground black pepper


1. Warm olive oil in a saucepan over medium high heat.

2. Add onions, and saute, stirring occasionally, until they begin to caramelize.

3. Turn the heat down to low, and add the sugar. Do not stir- allow the sugar to melt.

4. Once the sugar is melted, turn the heat back up to medium. Without stirring, cook for about 6 more minutes. The mixture will darken, similar to caramel in color and texture.

5. Add in vinegar and herbs, and stir until fully incorporated.

6. Simmer on low until it reduces by half. Remove the herbs and discard. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

7. Cool for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the jam to set.
