Savory Onion Marmalade

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sharon123

As a condiment, this is top of the list! Long, slow cooking lends the onions succulence and depth, which, in turn, adds a wonderful rich flavor to almost any dish. Try this on toast, biscuits, potatoes, pizza, in sandwiches, in a soup or stew, and especially good over Sun Dried Tomato Polenta Cutlets! From Moosewood Restaurant Low Fat Favorites Cookbook. Enjoy!

I had an overwhelming desire to eat the whole thing straight from the skillet! The smell was sooo enticing, it was hard to wait them out! I made much more then two cups worth, so I used your amounts just as a guideline but followed everything else. I put some on my plain dry-baked chicken breast (diet time) and changed a boring dinner into a feast for practically NO calories! Next time I will leave out the wine as the only reason I had any here was from one of my students birthday dinner....but I don't think it will hurt one bit!
