Caramelized Onion Jam

Deb Crane


This condiment is so versatile! I love it in my savory tarts. It is also wonderful along side a meat dish. You can use it on sandwiches, like grilled cheese, tomato and onion tart sandwich! Countless ways to use this wonderful spread!

How to Make Caramelized Onion Jam


  1. Slice or fine chop the onions. Depends on how you like them. Just be sure they are fairly even in size.
  2. In a large pan, heat olive oil. Add the onions and heat until golden brown. (about 15 minutes. Might take more)
  3. When the onions are golden, sprinkle with the sugar and let it cook without stirring for 5 minutes. Then start stirring and cook until brown caramel forms (about 6 minutes)
  4. Add the vinegar and rosemary and simmer on low heat until thickened. (about 5-10 for the mixture to thicken)
  5. Take off heat and add a bit of salt to taste.
  6. This spread can be refrigerated for 5 days. Serve it warmed or room temp. (even cold is ok in my book!
