Onion Jam

Recipe by Sydney Mike

This recipe was in The Ontario Seasonal Cookbook, 2007, which I recieved in a cookbook swap! This savory jam is delicious served with meats, & is also a great appetizer spread!

I reduced the recipe by 1/3 with great success. The only thing I would do differently next time is to chop up the onions instead of slicing. It was a bit difficult to eat for me. I thought this was delicious and went well with my tomato and balsamic vinegar chicken that I made for dinner last night. I slathered this on some homemade rolls.
