This week’s recipe for caramelized red onion marmalade is one I enjoyed making as much as tasting. The culinary gods rewarded me with the most aromatic treat as I cooked the onions. They took pity on my crying heart – these onion tears were so worth it! The entire kitchen filled with the aroma of sweet red onions, red wine, and brown sugar.
This will make a delicious topping for a steak, patty melt, pork chops, bruschetta, cheeses, pizza, omelettes- edible and endless possibilities.
Caramelized Red Onion Marmalade
4 large red onions, thinly sliced
½ cup red wine
½ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ cup honey
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
pepper to taste
Combine onions, red wine, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, nutmeg, and honey together in a medium saucepan, stirring constantly over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 7 minutes.
Reduce heat and simmer until the onions appear caramelized and the sauce is the thick, the consistency of marmalade. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Remove from heat. Serve warm.
