Roasted garlic and onion jam

2009_11070003This is a condiment from paninikathy’s blog, Panini Happy. So good. Very easy and I can see I’ll be making this a staple in our house-Terri smears it on lots of things. OK, me too. Too much light in photo, but you get the idea.

3 large onions, sweet or white

2-3 heads of roasted garlic (I use 3)

2 Tbsp. sugar

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

4 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar

Squeeze out the cloves of roasted garlic onto a dish to have at the ready. You can mash them or keep whole, whatever floats your boat.

Thinly slice the onions and put in a large frying pan with a little oil over medium heat. Toss well to coat, then cover and cook 15 minutes til translucent, stirring every once in awhile. Remove cover, add both sugars, stir well, replace cover and cook about 30 minutes. Don’t forget to stir occasionally or burning may happen. The onions should be golden by now. Add 1/4 cup of water and cook and stir another 20-30 minutes until they are a dark brown. Uncover, add vinegar, the roasted garlic and another 1/4 cup of water. Keep the lid off and just cook and stir until the liquid has mostly cooked off. Cool and store in fridge.
