      This is some tasty stuff. I used vidalias and with them being such a sweet onion I should have left out the sugar, as it was a "hair" too sweet for me with it. Next time if I use them I will not add the sugar. This cooks up beautifully and the smells wafting through your home truly will make your mouth water. I have used this on beer grilled brats served in a pretzel roll and on a burger with cojack cheese. Both ways were outstanding. I had some left to put into small freezer containers and it also freezes beautifully. I will enjoy this often, thank you Charmie for sharing this recipe.

      Made this for a hotdog lunch last Saturday. DH and I loved it, but I expected that. Surprisingly, my not-so-adventurous kids really liked it, too! Really fab, complex flavour. This would be great accompanying any grilled meat, I expect.

      Great topping for hot dogs and it was also delicious on Italian sausage. This will definitely be a regular addition to my family barbeques.
